TC 8-800 Medical Education & Demonstration of Individual Competence (MEDIC) is a 48hr, 9 day course that includes Tables I-VII and skills validation (Table VIII).
These are individual tasks and skills used for treating patients in medical and military environments. Completing tables I-VII provides the 68W with 48 hours toward NREMT re-certification.
This combined with Table VIII testing (ACMS-VT) meets The Surgeon General of the Army’s intent.
Combat Lifesaver Course (CLS)
TARGET: 1 SOLDIER PER SQUAD/TEAM
This 4 day course serves as a bridge between the selfaid/buddy aid training given to all Soldiers, and the medical training given to the combat medic.
The CLS is a non-medical Soldier who provides lifesaving measures as his primary mission allows, who can assist the medic in providing care and preparing casualties for evacuation.
Basic Life Support (BLS)
This course is designed to provide the skills to sustain life until more advanced lifesaving measures are available. Certification is a 6 hour course and covers adult and child CPR, adult and child 2-rescuer CPR, bag-valve mask technique, choking, automated external defibrillation (AED), special situations, rescue breathing, and stroke.
Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3)
TARGET: SOLDIERS E1-08
This 16hr, 2 day course addresses the unique focus and approach to the combat trauma patient. TC3 guidelines recognize that patient care in the tactical environment has 3 goals; treating the casualties, preventing additional casualties, and completing the mission. This course is available to all military, Law Enforcement, Fire Department, and EMS personnel.
Improved First Aid Kit (IFAK) Familiarization
This 4hr course is designed to familiarize every Soldier
with the purpose and contents of the IFAK, and train
the Soldier on when and how to use each of the items
contained in the IFAK.
