Tactical Care Officer Course

Course Overview

The Tactical Care Officer Course is based around, and is compliant with, the requirements of the National Police Firearms Training Curriculum - Module D13 (Enhanced Level). 

The course focuses on the provision of effective trauma management in all environments, enabling officers to provide rapid and effective life-saving interventions, where access to emergency medical services may be limited or restricted by the tactical situation. 

The training is suitable for all police officers, but particularly officers in specialist roles such as firearms, public order and surveillance and officers of the Serious and Organised Crime Agency. It will also suit officers of agencies such as the UK Border Agency and HM Revenue and Customs. 

As with all Prometheus courses, the emphasis is on short lectures, high instructor to student ratios and role-related, scenario-based moulages. This course covers all of the competencies required for certification. 


The Tactical Care Officer Course aims to equip police and law enforcement officers with the essential medical skills required to deliver lifesaving immediate medical care in a tactical or 'hot zone' situation.

No prior qualifications required, though some basic first aid training would be useful. There will be some pre-course reading required.
