This course had been written in blood. The tools gained fron this course could really prevent the loss of life with 3 interventions. There are many tactical medic courses but this one is the only one out side of the military that is reconized by the CoTCCC and it is the only one that offers a internationally reconized certification in Tactical Medicine. What are your thoughts?

I was to coy to ask in my original post LOL! I have already accepted your friendship and was glad to, not to mention appreciative of the offer. So is NAEMT sending a "select" group to the DMRC to recieve training and subsequent certification as TCCC providers, then Instructors, then train-the-trainers so they can then go back to their locales and begin the infrastructure? Not to worry, I wouldnt tell DMRC and knew that you were doing this training first LOL. How did you become a combat medic Instructor? How long is the training to become a combat medic? Does one need EMT training as a prerequisite to become a combat medic? How long was the training to become a Combat Medic Instructor? Sorry for all the questions its just that I LOVE Tactical/Combat Medicine and am seriously considering becoming a U.S. Army Reservist, hopefully as a combat medic though I have a bachelors degree as well and am afraid I will be cajoled into OTC, relegated to doing administrative tasks and not being in the field (not to mention wearing those training wheels on my shoulders). Please please please correct me if I have been misled in forming this opinion, I greatly welcome it. I wish there was a program allowing civilian TEMS providers to cross train with the USSOCOM Tactical Medical Operators to become Advanced Tactical Practitioners as they are. THAT WOULD BE INCREDIBLE! I love your enthusiasm.

Yes sir that is the course I have been teaching this course for a little over a year as a non card producing pilot we attended instructor course in Dec of last year. Don't tell DMRTI but we taught the course first at the Dept of Combat Medic training. To be able to teach tc3 you have to go through a PHTLS instructor course and then the tc3 provider and instructor once you have that then you can schedule tc3 courses. It is a good course we use it as an intro them we do tons of skills refinement. If you want to attend courses let me know go to the www.vtinst.com site for course dates. The logo is that of our company we are a new company but not new to tactical medicine. I don't know if I will make it to soma this year but keep in touch. My mission is to make sure the right info gets to the right people. Take care and do you mind if o add you as a friend?

Hi Paul! Are you referring to TCCC that the NAEMT just launched? I am a member of SOMA, and was reading that the first class was recently held (at time of JSOM publication) at the Defense Medical Readiness Training Institute. I am a NAEMT member but am not sure how they are going to administer the TCCC course. Will it be part of the PHTLS Committee? Will their be Instructor courses first etc.? I would very much like to take this course, any info you could share would be most appreciated. p.s. I love your pic/logo never have seen it before where is it from? Thanks for your time!
