The PFC “TCAIR” training program aims to span the bridge of job, environment, and mission specific in-extremis pre-hospitalization trauma care (at times under fire) for individuals of all skill levels. As an armed professional, service member, or first responder, being medically capable is required for survival and saving lives. And if you are a civilian, you may need to treat yourself or loved ones during a time-sensitive trauma scenario. Understanding anatomy, methods, and critical equipment can literally spell the difference between life and death. Anyone can make a dramatic lifesaving impact during high priority events and emergencies if they are equipped with the right medical training. Day-1 of TCAIR is a full 8-hours focused on common trauma management, tools, techniques, and treatment procedures. Training prepares students for first response to physical trauma and medical emergencies in all types of environments. In addition to trauma care, students will receive instruction in CPR, Basic First Aid, and AED operation (Automated External Defibrillator). Day-2 of TCAIR includes an additional eight hours of scenario-based training designed to expose students to greater ambiguity, fluidity, and decision-making. Through the use of moulage, non-lethal training munitions, trained role-players, varying conditions of light, and a multitude of other artificial stressors, training is brought into a whole new realm of realism and effectiveness. All PFC TCAIR training is recognized by NAEMT; the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians. Successful completion of TCAIR earns graduates their Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Certification, which is valid for 4 years and satisfies Department of Defense requirements.
