This 8-hour Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) course will empower you and your team with the skills needed to successfully function in high-stress situations and treat the three leading causes of preventable combat death: uncontrolled hemorrhage, tension pneumothorax and airway obstruction.

IMG_4072Training is conducted in partnership between KMI’s Applied Tactics Division and ADAPTAGEAR™. With a cadre of Special Operations Combat Veterans (AFSOC Pararescue), and our advanced customizable, modular training facility, scenarios can range from individual first aid to a multi-casualty incident that can take place in anything from a schoolhouse to a health clinic. Using remote and sensor-powered environmental controls, students will learn to manage: hostile threats, various environments, zero-visibility, low light and other obstacles. You will be placed in numerous situations such as being under fire from our instructor cadre utilizing mil-sim platforms for the most realistic training opportunity. Evolutions and progress can be captured via the use of 16 day/night vision cameras located throughout the tactical area and provided to students on-demand.
