This is a 3-day training and exam preparation program that prepares students to sit for the Tactical Paramedic Certification (TP-C) exam. Created by the International Board of Specialty Certifications (IBSC), the TP-C exam was developed to implement a gold-standard for all tactical medical personnel. Before the implementation of the TP-C, tactical medical certifications were strictly civilian or military. Now, the TP-C bridges that gap and is considered the world’s most challenging tactical medical exam. Covering advanced tactical medicine topics, such as medical mission planning, force protection, non-lethal weapon injuries, and canine-TCCC, the TP-C validates that a tactical medic is a true professional. The TP-C Prep Course is taught using proprietary IA MED study guides, quizzes, and includes a full-length exam. It is also accredited by the IBSC and has been used by various units to validate its medics as practitioners of tactical medicine.
This course is designed specifically to teach tactical medical concepts in an easy to understand format. Although intended for paramedics, the course is open to anyone, although the course will not address concepts below the level of a paramedic.
Our course provides insight and clarity to complex critical care medical concepts and procedures. The training is approved for 40 hours of continuing education by the IBSC (BCCTPC) and will also apply toward 24 “Additional Education” hours required by the NREMT. Current FP-C and CCP-C card holders may attend this course to meet BCCTPC educational requirements to maintain certification as a critical care paramedic.
