Critical Casualty Care Training

Critical Casualty Care Training

The first person capable of acting is the true “First Responder.” Knowing proper bleeding control techniques and other basic trauma care can potentially save a victim’s life in the minutes it may take emergency personnel to arrive on scene.

88 Tactical’s Critical Casualty Care Training classes fill the gap between combat aid and civilian EMS training.

Critical Casualty Care Training Courses

Critical Casualty Care Training I & II are 3-hour courses that include:

  • an overview of trauma care
  • mindset
  • environmental hazards and treatment
  • wound dressing
  • bleeding control – with an emphasis on tourniquet use

An injury on a

  • shooting range
  • motor vehicle accident
  • child running through a plate glass door
  • an animal bite

Are all injuries that can require aggressive bleeding control to save the victim’s life. Tourniquets used to be considered a last resort, but are now at the top of the list as the recommended treatment for life-threatening bleeding from an extremity.

88 Tactical Training Courses

All 88 Tactical training courses are built on the core concept of Reality Behavior-Based Conditioning©. 88’s courses condition an appropriate crisis response that maximizes performance while working with, instead of against, a person’s survival-oriented instincts and intuitions.

Students will receive instruction and demonstration on each course topic and then be expected to perform the task under varying levels of stress. This course exposes students to visually traumatic images and artificial blood. Portions of this training include physically demanding and emotionally challenging scenarios.

Critical Casualty Care

The Critical Casualty Care Training course curriculum is based on Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) core concepts. TECC is the civilian version of the military’s Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) – TECC was developed to bring combat level of care to civilian first responders.


At the end of the level 2 course, students will be expected to:

  • Explain first aid work priorities in a high-threat environment
  • Demonstrate the following self-aid and buddy-aid techniques:
    • Proper hemorrhage control
    • Proper airway control
    • Techniques for wound dressing
    • Techniques to prevent shock
