-Basic Tactical Medical Instructor Training Program (BTMITP)-

3-day Program

The Basic Tactical Medical Instructor Training Program (BTMITP) is a highly intense training program requiring a physical demand on the student and consists of lecture, labs and skill practice. The law enforcement officer will gain knowledge and skills necessary to mitigate the loss of their life or the life of another while in an active threat environment. The skills will address treating life threatening injuries in an austere environment with limited equipment, lack of medically trained personnel and prolonged time to evacuation.

Tactical Medical is a systematic approach to dealing with casualties in a tactical environment. It is strongly influenced by the model used by the Department of Defense called Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC). As the name implies, TCCC incorporates tactical problem solving into any situation in which casualties are incurred from an armed, hostile opponent. The TCCC system focuses on saving “preventable deaths” while achieving three primary goals: Treat the Casualty, Prevent Additional Casualties and Continue the Mission.

-Leadership Through Understanding Human Behavior (LTUHB)-

3-day Program

The Leadership Thru Understanding Human Behavior (LTUHB) allows participants to develop a better understanding of themselves, interpersonal dynamics, and how their strengths, weaknesses, and roles within workgroups and teams affect a mission's outcome. Participants learn how to adapt to and capitalize on each other's strengths in order to have more effective mission outcomes. The program starts by developing self-awareness and the ability to recognize behavioral styles in order to build relationships. As workgroups/members start to develop an understanding of the strengths and benefits associated with behavioral styles and value systems, collectively they start to develop strategies to effectively accomplish goals. This information can be used to establish more effective workgroups and teams by capitalizing on the strengths each individual brings to the group. More specifically, training can yield valuable information on the particular aspects of the team's development process.
