ADVANCED COMBAT MEDICINE FOR THE MEDIC/CORPSMAN
This Advanced Combat Medic Course is designed at the medic level. The curriculum is based from the skills of USSOCOM Tactical Combat Casualty Care course (TCCC), the application of current medical treatments and equipment, lessons learned from recent and current conflicts, medical skills essential for today's combat medic (including those taught at the Special Forces Medical Sergeant's [18D]Course), and is complimented with the inclusion of Live Tissue Training.
ADVANCED COMBAT MEDICINE FOR THE OPERATOR
This Advanced Combat Medic Course is designed for the Operator. It is the same curriculum as the Combat Medicine Course for the Operator course, but includes Live Tissue Training. This is the most realistic and effective course to train operators in the lifesaving skills they need for combat.
ADVANCED MEDICAL “CROSS-TRAINING”
This course is for military medical personnel who wish to obtain additional skill sets to compliment their MOS. This cross training has many forms and can include transition to civilian prehospital emergency medical training.
BASIC TRAUMA LIFE SUPPORT (BTLS) / INTERNATIONAL TRAUMA LIFE SUPPORT (ITLS) – “MILITARY VERSION”
Basic Trauma Life Support Military Edition is a 16-hour comprehensive course covering the skills necessary for rapid assessment, resuscitation, stabilization, and transportation of trauma patients. Created for the military medic, the primary objectives of the course are to teach the correct sequence of evaluation and the techniques of resuscitation and packaging a patient.
COMBAT LIFE SAVER (CLS)
The combat life saver is a bridge between the self-aid/buddy-aid training given all soldiers during basic training and the medical training given to the combat medic. The CLS is a non-medical soldier who provides lifesaving measures and assists the combat medic as directed. This course follows the official curriculum of the U.S. Army.
COMBAT MEDICINE FOR THE MEDIC/CORPSMAN
This course is designed to give the medic the scientific background and skills to teach basic combat medicine to operators. While the medic possesses the medical skills to teach his fellow soldiers lifesaving procedures, he benefits from a course that introduces teaching skills, scenarios for application, and other educational methods. This is a “train the trainer” and “tricks of the trade” course from the experts.
COMBAT MEDICINE FOR THE OPERATOR
TMI’s basic Combat Medicine for the Operator Course is based on the objectives of the USSOCOM Tactical Combat Casualty Care course (TCCC). This course includes all of the components of TCCC, and also includes other important tactical and medical skills required to adequately prepare operators in the lifesaving skills they will need in combat. This course includes a culminating field training exercise, but does not include live tissue training.
ENHANCED TACTICAL COMBAT CASUALTY CARE (TCCC-E)
TMI also offers an exclusive 5-day “enhanced course” which includes Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC). The enhanced version meets all of the requirements of the standard TCCC course, but also includes other important medical training. TMI offers many “blocks” of instruction to choose from. This allows military units to custom design a course that best fits their needs. It also allows for the unit to provide 2 additional days of important training to their personnel at little additional cost. In addition, the 5-day course culminates with an extensive field training exercise where the students are able to integrate the learned concepts into military maneuvers specific to their unit (patrol, CQB, room clearing, waterborne ops, etc). The opportunity to demonstrate proficiency of all aspects of TCCC during simulated environments is very well received by the students and is unavailable during the 3-day course, and not offered by USAISR.
PREHOSPITAL TRAUMA LIFE SUPPORT (PHTLS) “MILITARY VERSION”
In 2001, the Army's 68W program standardized the training for its medics to include PHTLS. The participation of the US military in the PHTLS program includes providing information on tactical medicine that is of interest to the military, and any population in the modern world. The new edition military text includes combat field care, tactical field care, CASEVAC and triage in tactical combat casualty care. Blast injuries, medical operations in urban injuries, MEDEVAC and military medical ethics are also discussed.
SPECIAL OPERATIONS MEDICAL SUSTAINMENT SKILLS
This training is provided to combat medical personnel, and is identical to that offered by USSOCOM at JSOMTC, Ft. Bragg, NC. The curriculum is based on the Special Operations Combat Medic Critical Task List, and includes: Basic Sciences, Joint Operational Medicine, Basic Dental Emergency Procedures, Environmental Injuries, Pharmacology, Emergency Cardiac Care, Clinical Medicine, Clinical Skills, and Trauma. As per USSOCOM directives, the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) course for Emergency Cardiac Care, Basic Life Support Course (BLS) for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, Pediatric Education for Pre-Hospital Providers (PEPP) course for Pediatric Emergencies, and Pre-hospital Trauma Life Support for non-tactical trauma care will all be included and re-certified.
SPORTS MEDICINE FOR THE SOLDIER/ATHLETE
Sports Medicine for the Soldier/Athlete is designed for anyone who is interested in the prevention, care, treatment, and rehabilitation of “athletic injuries”. This course also addresses taping and bracing, injury evaluation, fitness, and nutrition.
TACTICAL COMBAT CASUALTY CARE (TCCC)
TMI offers the 3-day course in Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC). TMI uses the most current USSOCOM-Approved curriculum for Tactical Combat Casualty Care, including the most recent changes (July 2008). This 3-day course is designed for medics and non-medic operators.
TACTICAL EMERGENCY MEDICAL SUPPORT (TEMS) FOR MILITARY
This TEMS course was originally designed for civilian SWAT medics, and not for military medics. However, to date, our TEMS course has been the single most requested course by both civilian agencies and military units. Many military units have provided this training to all levels of medics (including combat life savers, 68W, and 18D), and believe that many of the “civilian concepts” are useful as an adjunct to the military technique already taught.
WARRIOR ATHLETE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING (WASC)
When developing a comprehensive strength and conditioning program, operators must consider the physical demands of operational related activities. The WASC course is provides individuals with information to properly design, implement, and instruct military personnel in weight training and operational fitness. This is a 3 day course that includes both lectures and hands-on techniques specific to military tasks. Topics include: Basic Exercise Physiology, Strength Training Principles, Speed Development, Agility Training, Conditioning, Program Design, Nutrition, Assessment, Sports Injuries, Speed, Agility, Plyometrics, Circuit Training, Olympic lifts, and working with implements.
