About this Course

The TacMed Advanced First Aid & Resuscitation course has been developed for people who work in remote, austere or complex environments who may be required to treat critically injured casualties or resuscitate a cardiac arrest patient using specialist equipment.

An intense 3 Day course, this has been developed to bring individuals from a limited first aid level to become competent and confident as an advanced first aider.

Through this course you will learn how to comprehensively Access, Assess, Stabilise and Evacuate a range of casualties in the high-risk environment to ensure the best patient outcomes.

Our highly experienced clinical instructors will also cover subjects such as Situational Awareness (SA) and mindset for the high-risk environment. With TacMed’s proven methodologies and a decade of experience delivering emergency and tactical medical training in Australia, participants will not only gain the skills but will feel confident to apply them when seconds count.
