This course is “Open Enrollment” No previous medical training or medical experience is necessary to take this course.
This TCCC course is the companion course to PHTLS for the military and for the warriors who are preparing to be deployed in support of combat perations. Casualty care in this setting must be the best possible combination of good medicine and good small-unit tactics. The critical thinking skills of the Individual as both a tactical operator and a medical provider must be brought into play. The specifics of casualty care in the tactical setting will depend on the tactical situation, the injuries sustained by the casualty, and the Management of the trauma patient. Within this educational program is emphasis on the need to rely on critical thinking and a strong base of knowledge to modify the care of the patient as required by the situation, the condition of the patient, the knowledge and skill of the provider, and the resources available at the time the care is needed. This is otherwise known the “Art and Science” of trauma care.
In the combat environment, the situation is very different from the civilian environment, the knowledge and skills of the first responder (who may not be a medic or a corpsman), and the medical equipment at hand dictate the specifics of casualty care in this setting. This is in contrast to an Emergency Department setting where the patient IS the mission; on the battlefield care of casualties sustained is only PART of the mission.
TCCC recognizes this fact and structures its guidelines to accomplish three primary goals:
1) Treat the casualty 2) Prevent additional casualties 3) Complete the mission
In the combat environment many challenges exist that will affect patient care. Although the principles of trauma care must be carried out, the preferences used may change significantly. The TCCC program was developed to customize the principles of good trauma care for successful use on the battlefield.
TCCC divides the care into three distinct phases of care:
1. Care Under Fire
2. Tactical Field Care
3. Tactical Evacuation Care
Our basic TCCC course of instruction will take the student through:
Basic Anatomy and Physiology - The student will learn the basic underlying structures in the human body that will provide a base to build from.
The Phases of Care - A standardized approach in caring for a casualty is taught so that the non-medical person can understand and apply life saving principles.
Control of Major Bleeding - We will teach our client the most rapid way to control arterial bleeding. This is the "Number One Leading Preventable Cause of Death on the Battlefield". Using Tourniquets, Combat Gauze, Standard Gauze and pressure to control bleeding this will be hands on exercise.
Airway - Learn how to Open mange and protect the airway using adjuncts.
Breathing - The "Second Leading Preventable Cause of Death on the Battlefield" is a tension pneumothorax. You will be able to recognize and treat this injury.
Abdominal Trauma - Learn what you able to do to provide care for an injury in the abdominal region.
Bandaging and Splinting - You will learn how to control non-life threatening bleeding and support underlying fractures, as well as open fractures.
Head and Spine Trauma - In the out-of-the-hospital- setting, we will give you the training to care and manage this casualty.
Eye Injuries - Our students learn how to treat an injury to the eye.
Shock- Our students will learn how to recognize and treat for Shock.
We will use the MARCH guideline:
M- Massive Bleeding
H- Head Injury & Hypothermia

The “State of the Art” in medicine is constantly changing –unlearn outdated medical training @ CCJA.
Based on my first experience with CCJA training I'm personally planning on going. The training is unmatched by anything else I have personally experienced. And, as someone who practices concealed carry on a regular basis this seems nearly as important as safe and effective shooting.
