Introduction

Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) is developed by the U.S. Department of Défense Health Agency (DHA) Joint Trauma System to teach  evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care on the battlefield. ABA conducts TCCC courses as specified by the DHA-JTS. ABA currently offers three types of TCCC courses.

  • TCCC-MP (TCCC for Medical Personnel) is a 16-hour course for military medical personnel  including medics, corpsmen, and pararescue personnel deploying in support of combat operations.
  • TCCC-CLS (TCCC Combat Lifesaver) is a 40-hour course for non-medical military personnel deploying in support of combat operations.
  • TCCC-ASM (TCCC All Service Members) is a 7-hour course for all service members. (no service members will take the 22 hours course)

The foundational medical science upon which TCCC is based is published in ABA’s PHTLS Military textbook in which the military chapters are written by the Co-TCCC. TCCC courses offered by ABA are endorsed by the Joint Trauma System and the American College of Surgeons. ABA’s TCCC-MP and TCCC-CLS courses are accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.

ABA’s TCCC courses are taught by a global network of experienced, well-trained instructors. To support training centres, instructors and students.
