The Tactical EMS School
Essentials for Tactical Medic Certification
September 26th – October 1, 2021 at Camp Ripley, MN
Hello! Please Allow Us To Introduce Ourselves…
We are current and active members of the tactical arena as well as students and practitioners of Tactical EMS. Like you, we learn what works and what does not through good faith trial and error and communicating with our peers. We use the term “training cadre” to describe ourselves and we do this with the utmost humility and respect. As a diverse group of professionals from all over the United States, we share simple but very strong cultural beliefs and values. Here are some things we have learned and truths we openly declare:
- Our role as leaders, teachers, trainers and coaches is a privilege that we treat as a legacy.
- We honor our mentors by mentoring others. We share our gifts and talents in good faith just as they were bequeathed to us. Honor, character, and integrity are values that must be modeled, upheld, and preserved.
- Through preplanning, education, modeling behavior and “doing the right thing” we have the opportunity to serve our fellow man in a noble way -preventing harm.
- Don’t sacrifice a relationship to achieve an outcome. We leave politics, ego, and self-aggrandizement behind.
- If we don’t know…we say so! Self-proclaimed experts and self-indulging arrogance get good people killed.
- Teamwork is our demonstrated behavior, not a political buzzword.
- We are more interested in building an inclusive team than an exclusive club.
- Share. Why try to reinvent the wheel? (But purposeful change for a better result is good!)
- Positive energy feeds, negative energy drains.
- When it is time for battle, fight fiercely and intelligently. The rest of the time…be nice!

The Tactical EMS School is a 70+ hour training camp designed for the operator who will oversee or directly deliver emergency medical care for a team or organization. Skills, drills, case studies and operational exercises are based heavily upon the current Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) model with an emphasis on prevention, preparedness, occupational medicine, improvisational ability, and a penchant for functioning as an effective team member. Our educational content is approved by CoTECC and the International
Board for Specialty Certifications (IBSC) recognizes our program for the recertification of tactical medics. Our course is valid for the novice and veteran alike, from first responder to emergency physician, as everyone has a role to play in every circumstance. Our program is residency-based with lodging and meals provided since most days run for 12 hours. We have offered this continually-evolving course annually since 1987.
