It is designed to decrease preventable deaths in a tactical situation. The course presents the three phases of tactical care:

Direct Threat Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.
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.
