Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) is developed by the U.S. Department of Defense, Defense Health Agency (DHA) Joint Trauma System to teach evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care on the battlefield. NAEMT conducts TCCC courses as specified by the DHA-JTS.
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.
The foundational medical science upon which TCCC is based is published in NAEMT's PHTLS Military textbook in which the military chapters are written by the Co-TCCC. TCCC courses offered by NAEMT are endorsed by the Joint Trauma System and the American College of Surgeons. NAEMT's TCCC-MP and TCCC-CLS courses are accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.
