Combat Live Fire Medical Provider Course (CLFMPC)

Offers an immersive and intense training experience that merges tactical medicine with operational aspects of Tactical Operations.

VAMS places an emphasis on combining tactical medicine at the point of wounding, extrication techniques and CCP operations. We combine this with working space and angles of CQB within small tactical cells provides our students a hands-on approach to learning CQB fundamentals. The incorporation of tactical medical capacities into the operational rhythm in tactical operational environments demonstrates a concerted effort to align medical support seamlessly with the mission's pace and demands. VAMS CLFMPC provides a holistic understanding of different battle techniques, tactics, operational tempos and the intricacies of meeting operational mission requirements, contributing to a more effective integration of medical support within tactical missions.

The physically demanding nature of the course, particularly spending significant time in simulated environments like the shoot house and live-fire ranges, indicates a practical application of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) principles under realistic and high-stress conditions. This hands-on experience increases participants ability to adapt and apply their medical skills in dynamic, high-pressure scenarios.

The focus on enabling participants to leave the course with not just knowledge but also tactical experience emphasizes the aim of fostering better synchronization between medical support and the teams they assist. Ultimately, this kind of training likely enhances the participants' ability to provide effective and immediate medical aid in complex and high-risk operational environments.
