Tactical Trauma Care

2016 Course Dates


2nd - 5th March 2017 (Open course)

Other dates available on request for corporate or group bookings.

About the course

The First Person on Scene/TTC course is suitable for security professionals or medical professionals wanting to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to help in life-threatening situations, and is particularly relevant for those operating in areas where professional medical assistance isn’t immediately available. It represents a significant progression from the first aid basics, introducing students to rapid assessment and stabilisation as well as tactical awareness.

All elements of our course can be tailored to suit the people taking part, and made relevant to the areas they will be operating in – from personnel providing security in hostile environments, to maritime security officers– but at its core are the skills needed to give them confidence when dealing with casualties.

What to expect

The Galahad FPOSI/TCC course is realistic and practical, aimed at security operatives and the specific situations they may encounter. As well as covering the obvious injuries related to trauma we also look at the more likely medical emergencies encountered when working with principals.

The course includes a combination of theoretical and practical teaching sessions. There are multiple scenario based, realistic exercises that test not only initial response to a medical emergency, but also the candidate’s ability to provide effective monitoring and aftercare.

Why Galahad?

Our medical training team are all highly qualified military medics who have real time experience in major conflict areas around the world.

All have worked with elite and special forces units, and bring a wealth of knowledge to the course.

This experience, combined with our specialist training facilities, practical scenarios and large amounts of kit and equipment means that we are recognised as one of the leading providers of this type of training.

Recently Galahad became the sole providers of medical training to the Royal Military Police Close Protection Unit, running regular FPOSI/TTC courses for their personnel prior to operational deployment.


“Everyone who is ex-mil knows that scenario based training is the only training that works, many companies will happily do death by PowerPoint and sit back and take your money. Fair enough you’ll have a tick in the box but would you actually be confident at carrying out life saving procedures on a client or a team member when it counts??? That is what you have to ask yourself. Im happy to say that after attending Galahad’s course I’m more than happy and I’ve also recommended to the maritime company that I work for that all our blokes should go through them, as quite simply they are leading the way.

Jamie and John ran the course like clockwork, I honestly couldn’t pick them up on anything. Kit, equipment, scran, training were all hoofin.

If your trying to pick a provider then I’ll save you the hassle now and tell you these guys are top of the league, your hard earned cash will be well spent here.”

KH, Maritime Security Team Leader


“Great course, knowledgable instructors, awesome facilities.

Would recommend to anyone”

IM, Maritime Security operative/CPO

“I attended the FPOS-I course run by Galahad Associates in June and I was impressed from the outset. The training area is huge and the facilities are excellent..how many courses provide a free lunch?! 

John the trainer was highly experienced and was able to back up his knowledge with first hand experiences and stories which put everything into context. We were given plenty of practical work and realistic exercises to do throughout the week rather than just sitting in a classroom and the amount of kit and equipment available to us was excellent.

I have already recommended this course to others and I would definitely use Galahad Associates for further courses.”
