RTACC is designed to meet the specific casualty care needs of the emergency services and high-risk industries. However, in todays sometimes hostile world employers need to equip their in-house First Aid team with the knowledge and skills to deal with modern days scenarios – knife crime, terrorism, vehicle collisions and angry person injuries – you can get assaulted just by looking at someone the wrong way !!
Candidates will be empowered to manage serious medical and trauma emergencies in an immersive and engaging manner, developing knowledge, real world skills and confidence.
RTACC provides your organisation with tried and tested life saving skills in a 3 day course.
Extending from the BTACC course, RTACC provides additional skills at every level of the M.A.R.C.H approach; a very simple and systematic way of dealing with a wide range life threatening, time critical injuries.
RTACC has become the course of choice for fire and rescue services, police forces (D13 & D13E) and industries who operate in high risk, remote or hostile environments, not just in the UK but across the world.
Whilst BTACC is suitable for low to medium risk organisations, RTACC provides an additional level of knowledge, skills and equipment, enhancing their ability to preserve life.
RTACC guides the learner to identify and manage
time critical injuries with appropriate interventions. Hands-on experience, live actors, casualty simulation and short highly focused lectures providing the perfect balance of theoretical and practical learning.
RTACC has been written by leading pre-hospital doctors and is now internationally recognised. The course aims to ensure that all organisations are equipped to manage the most seriously injured, effectively and safely.
