Loss of blood is the number 1 cause of death in mass casualty situations. We provide the training to empower the immediate responder—you—to take action as soon as possible. We discuss techniques that meet the standards of the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) and recommendations of the American College of Surgeons.
Certification Courses Offered;
Bleeding Control (B-Con) 4 Hours
Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes. Anyone at the scene can act as immediate responder and save lives if they know what to do.
This course provides you with the knowledge and understanding to potentially save lives. Course Topics include;
- Medical Equipment
- Wound Identification
- Applying Direct Pressure
- Wound Packing
- Applying Pressure Dressing
This course is a recognized course by the American College of Surgeons.
SCG has teamed up with RSQ Task Force* who is a National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) training site authorized to conduct all NAEMT programs.
Most training providers can only offer you an introduction to Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) or Bleeding Control, We CERTIFY YOU in it.
We provide all the medical equipment needed for training. This includes hands on training with multiple tourniquets from different manufacturers, (CAT, SOF-T, SWAT-T, etc.) and pressure dressings. We use real bullet cavities for wound packing with active simulated bleeding, which allows you to see the hemostatic reaction. We provide different options for equipment so YOU can choose how to best equip your kit and IFAK for operational use. We provide fully stocked IFAKs for training, but encourage students to bring their own for familiarization.
These courses are designed for NON tactical law enforcement officers, firefighters, security personnel, teachers and other civilians including teachers, parents, and anyone else requiring this basic medical training.
The focus of these training programs is to recognize life-threatening injures and apply appropriate medical treatment. This training will show you the actions that you can take to help save a life before professional rescuers arrive.

TECC (Tactical Emergency Casualty Care) 2 day (16 Hours)
Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) teaches EMS practitioners and other prehospital providers how to respond to and care for patients in a civilian tactical environment. 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
- Strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments
- Caring for pediatric patients
- Techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.
NAEMT’s TECC course meets the guidelines established by the Committee on TECC and the updated National Tactical Emergency Medical Support Competency Domains. This course is accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.
*The primary instructor is Affiliate Faculty for NAEMT, enabling him to monitor and certify instructors. The medical courses proposed meet continuing education activity and are approved by NAEMT, an organization accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS).
