High Risk First Responder | TCCC Certification

6-day GI Bill Approved Tactical Combat Casualty Care / TCCC Medic Course.


“This Tactical medicine course is by far the best I have seen in my 15 years of service in the SEAL teams. The final exercise is as realistic and stressful as I’ve seen in a training environment. They not only hit the wickets for the cert but also provide some unparalleled realistic training scenarios utilizing Hollywood makeup artists and the most knowledgeable instructors in the business”

High Risk First Responder Course (Includes TCCC Provider certification via the NAEMT)

Whether you are working in the US or abroad, well rounded medical training can be the difference between life and death. Many do not have time to attend lengthy Emergency Medical Technician or Paramedic courses, not to mention the dedication and opportunity to become a military medic. The High Risk Medic course was designed with this in mind and covers the most important live-saving aspects of all of these emergency medical professions in a high-retention 6-day format. No prior medical training is required to take the High Risk First Responder Medic course.

Students will receive:

  • Tactical Combat Casualty Care Provider Certificate and card (NAEMT – valid 4 years)
