These training courses are an effort to bring to the best of practical TCCC to the arena of civilian first aid response. The basic CCW or first responder citizen has had training in using their weapon to defend themselves or others but does not have any more than the minimum in medical aid training or experience, if any at all.
This training is a streamlining of the LE/Military “Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)”, which is the medical training that U.S. troops are currently taught to save lives on the battlefield. It is the combination of good medicine with good tactics. Also note, the mindset for these procedures are not to necessarily save someone’s life, but to prevent them from dying long enough to receive hospital level care. This is a very basic introduction. Due to the live fire nature of this course in a pair or small unit, you must have completed advanced firearms training.
