Tactical Medicine

The Tactical Medic course is intended for non-medical personnel who work in potentially hazardous environments. The target group includes members of special police units, intervention units and bodyguards.

When an injury is sustained, the victim is reliant on self-help for at least fifteen minutes, and it is often not enough to have knowledge of first aid protocols and related skills. Doctors and ambulance paramedics are usually not trained to carry out their work under violent circumstances which means that the tactical operative’s access to adequate medical treatment of life-threatening injuries is likely to be delayed.
