Course Description
The 2nd edition of NAEMT Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) course teaches EMS practitioners and other prehospital providers how to respond to and care for patients in a civilian tactical environment. The course presents the three phases of tactical care and integrates parallel EMS nomenclature. The three phases are Hot Zone/Direct Threat Care, Warm Zone/Indirect Threat Care and Cold Zone/Evacuation Care.

Endorsed by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma, NAEMT’s TECC course aligns with the latest guidelines set by the Committee on TECC (Co-TECC) and satisfies all updated National Tactical Emergency Medical Support Competency Domains criteria.

While NAEMT collaborates with Co-TECC as an educational ally, it’s worth noting that Co-TECC sets the standards for prehospital care during tactical incidents but doesn’t design or endorse any specific curriculum.
