Indirect Threat Care that is rendered while the threat has been suppressed, but may resurface at any point.



Evacuation Care that is rendered while the casualty is being evacuated from the incident site. 



The 16-hour classroom course covers the following topics:



Hemorrhage control;



Surgical airway control and needle decompression;



Strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments;



Caring for pediatric patients; and



Techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.




NAEMT's TECC course is Endorsed by the American College of Surgeons, meets the guidelines established by the Committee on TECC and the updated National Tactical Emergency Medical Support Competency Domains. This course is accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.
