High threat environments: Field trauma course

Course Overview

Despite the best training, equipment and preparation, sometimes things go wrong. If your team is taking casualties, medical training matters.

FulcrumTRG provides intense, comprehensive medical training for field personnel who work in the real world. Our field trauma course, originally designed as a

military specific program, is now available to any personnel working in high threat environments.

Run over two to three days, depending on client needs, HTE.FTC combines theory with skills acquisition, and applies training to realistic simulations.
