Tactical Course

UPEMS’s Tactical Medicine Course is designed after the IBSC’s Tactical Responder or Tactical Paramedic Course. The goal and mission is to always promote safety, and stability while managing patient care in the field. This course is designed to help you maintain situational awareness, as well as great patient care during times of increased activity and hot tactical situations.

What You Will Get


In this day and age, we feel like it is necessary to have this training so that you can better understand what to do if you find yourself in a situation and medical care is needed in a not so ideal situation!


We are a fully comprehensive Tactical EMS Program aimed at teaching you after the IBSC exam, so that you can sit and prepare for the test to the best of your ability! Our goal is to teach the importance of that pesky “Scene Safety” issue that we always hard on in EMS Classes, but to take it to a whole NEW extreme! This class will be ran from a SWAT style program with extreme discipline, PT, training, and physical fitness agility training. This is a high stressful course, it moves fast, and you will handle live firearms, police dogs and other live weapons!
