  OUR TRAINING COURSES

Defence and police work is not without risks. Good medical knowledge and skills are of great importance. Advanced Forces Group offer various tactical medical training programmes. We also offer currency training to keep knowledge and skills up to date, with the accompanying Certificates of Competence (BC codes).

During training, all military personnel learn first aid skills, also known as Self-help Comrades Help (ZHKH, Zelf Hulp Kameraden Hulp in Dutch). Military personnel can expand this knowledge by following additional tactical medical training courses. We distinguish three different levels here, which we describe as “Basic Plus”, “Advanced” and “Expert”.

In order to keep the level of knowledge and skills fresh in their minds, military personnel attend currency training courses every year, which are also offered by AFG.

1. COMBAT LIFE SAVER

Training course duration: 4 weeks.

Level Basic Plus, also called Combat Life Saver.

EA Combat Life Saver cares for, stabilises and prepares casualties for transfer.

2. COMBAT MEDIC

Training course duration: 13 weeks.

Level Advanced, follows on from Combat Life Saver training.

A Combat Medic has the knowledge and skills to take care of a sick person for several days.

CURRENCY TRAINING COURSES

Tactical medical knowledge and skills must be refreshed annually. Currency training extends the Certificates of Competence (BC codes) of military personnel.

There is a specific currency training for each level.

  AFG PROVIDES TACTICAL MEDICAL TRAINING

There are various levels of tactical medical training. Obviously, not every soldier needs to know all the procedures. By having the right knowledge and skills in each unit, our armed forces can operate as effectively and efficiently as possible.

The training levels differ in duration, depth and intensity.

1. COMBAT LIFE SAVER TACTICAL MEDICAL TRAINING

Duration: 3 weeks | Certificate of Competence | On location or at AFG

The Combat Medic training course is aimed at military personnel who need to be able to provide more than basic level care. This training course lasts 13 weeks. Military personnel are taught additional (lifesaving) actions to increase deployability and/or chance of survival of a sick or wounded person.

This training course follows on from the first level Combat Life Saver.

2. TACTICAL MEDICAL TRAINING COMBAT MEDIC

Duration 13 weeks I BC code I At own location or AFG location

The Combat Medic training course is aimed at military personnel who need to be able to provide more than basic level care. This training course lasts 13 weeks. Military personnel are taught additional (lifesaving) actions to increase deployability and/or chance of survival of a sick or wounded person.

This training course follows on from the first level Combat Life Saver.

CURRENCY TRAINING: REFRESH AND PRACTICE TACTICAL MEDICAL SKILLS

It is important to attend a medical training refresher course annually. The knowledge and skills are often not repeated in practice, but it is crucial to refresh and practice them regularly. For this purpose, tactical medical knowledge and skills are refreshed and, where necessary, renewed during our currency training courses.

For every tactical medical training course, AFG offers the appropriate currency training.
