Remote Care Course

The TacMed RCC is not your average nationally accredited Remote Area First Aid Course.

This course can be described as educational, adventurous, challenging and fun! If you picture a course that combines Remote Area First Aid, Military Prolonged Field Care and Wilderness Vertical Rescue all mixed into 2.5 days/nights worth of learning, then that's what RCCC is.

We'll introduce you to the concepts of Remote Casualty Care and Wilderness Rescue through a combination of theory, skills stations and immersive scenarios. With the experience of our highly qualified cadre, we'll challenge you (yes, our aim is to put you out of your comfort zone) both clinically and mentally. There will be some physically challenging components but you don't need to be an ironman to join us.

Course Content:

  • Medical planning for remote and austere environments
  • Assess and treat casualties in a remote/wilderness environment
  • Monitor and maintain casualties in a prolonged field care setting
  • Casualty evacuation from the remote environment
  • Introduction to wilderness vertical rope rescue


  • >18 years old
  • Physically fit (this isn't special forces selection but you need to be able to walk 1km with a 10kg pack)
  • No medical or roping experience required.


Adam Cantrick: Director of Development at TacMed, Diplomatic Protection Team Medic, and Paramedic with state Ambulance.

Tom Newkirk: Ex-Special Operations Medic and qualified Paramedic

Instructor 3: TBA

Bill Proctor: Managing Director of Safety Access & Rescue. Former Army Infantry, Parachute Instructor, Lvl 3 Rope Access Technician, Mountaineer Instructor and Wilderness / Industrial Rescue Instructor. It's fair to say if Bill doesn't know it about roping, you probably don't need to know it!
