LAW ENFORCEMENT TEMS TRAIN THE TRAINER
Why Take This Course
The Train the Trainer Tactical Medicine Course provides law enforcement instructors the knowledge and ability to teach TEMS within their department. Violence in our society is on the rise and the streets have proven to be a dangerous place. Serving warrants, active shooter, terrorist events and even routine traffic stops have potential for casualties. Many of the first responder programs fail to address this very real potential. TEMS gives the law enforcment officer the edge in preventing LODD.
Tactical medicine courses have traditionally been for combat medics and civilian paramedics. Similar to military combat lifesaver courses this TEMS program trains non-medical law enforcement personnel to provide tactical medical care. It offers ALL law enforcment officers the training and skill to be effective medical force multipliers.
This Instructor Development Course is for any law enforcement officer. It provides the foundation to be an effective instructor to teach the fundamental TEMS skills. These skills are necessary to provide immediate life saving measures in a tactical situation, active shooter, officer down, or anywhere the officer may be first on scene. These are the same skills that are taught to military personnel in the TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care) Course and EMT/Paramedics in the TECC (Tactical Emergency Casualty Care) Course.
