Combat First Aid Course

The Combat First Aid course is an intensive journey, spanning a two-day period, where you will learn to navigate complex medical emergencies that could arise in high-stakes environments. Our comprehensive curriculum is split into several sections, each focusing on a specific aspect of combat first aid. It goes beyond traditional first aid training to address the unique challenges posed by combat or high-risk situations.

Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)

This course revolves around Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), a trauma care protocol that has been tested and proven effective in battlefields around the world. The TCCC guidelines are designed for pre-hospital settings where resources are limited, and the threat level is high. These guidelines split combat casualty care into three distinct phases: care under fire, tactical field care, and tactical evacuation care. Our course delves into each phase, providing you with strategies and techniques to deliver effective casualty care amidst tactical challenges.

Bleeding Control and Wound Management: Mastering the Critical First Steps

Bleeding control is a vital component of first aid in combat or high-risk situations, where injuries resulting in significant blood loss are common. Our course offers comprehensive training in effective techniques to control bleeding, including the use of tourniquets, wound packing, and hemostatic agents. In addition, we equip you with the skills to manage chest injuries, particularly those leading to tension pneumothorax, a life-threatening condition that can occur in combat situations.

Airway Management - Ensuring Oxygen Supply in the Harshest of Environments

Our course understands the importance of maintaining a clear airway in unconscious or severely injured patients and provides robust training in airway management techniques. You will learn how to assess airway patency, perform basic airway manoeuvres, and use nasopharyngeal airways effectively. We emphasise the fact that in the chaos of a combat situation, a clear airway can be a decisive factor between life and death.

Recognition and Treatment of Shock

Shock, a condition that often follows severe injury, can deteriorate a casualty’s condition rapidly if not addressed. Our course enhances your ability to identify the signs of shock and administer appropriate immediate treatment, essential in preventing the situation from escalating towards organ failure or death.

An Essential Skillset for High-risk Environments

Whether you’re serving in the military, working as a law enforcement officer, a private security contractor, or guiding adventure sports, the skills imparted by our Combat First Aid course can be vital. By tailoring the course to the unique demands of extreme conditions, we help you gain the confidence to respond effectively to severe medical emergencies, thereby increasing survival chances.
