The Edge



First Responder Medical Training

The Edge offers advanced field medic courses, using the latest equipment, knowledge and near real scenario training, to ensure the highest level of understanding and competency.

Tactical Emergency Medical Support (TEMS) it is still described as the most adventurous, adrenaline pumping concept and course in South Africa.

Tactical Medicine is a young but fast-growing field in the South African Emergency Medical environment.  TacMed have conducted research and started developing TEMS for the South African Emergency Care Practitioner in 2002. With our own extensive combat medical experience as a starting point, we took some time to investigate and attend various international courses to see how the international market attains their goals in the training of their medical professionals.

Field medic

In our Field medic course you will learn the following:

  • Basic firearm techniques
  • advanced medical skills
  • Field medic equipment
  • Advanced trauma skills
  • Bush Craft
  • Courage under fire
  • Working under pressure
  • Patient transport
  • Team Dynamics and formations

And the benefits?

With TEMS there are medical professionals immediately on scene in a conflict situation and able to render immediate emergency medical care. The facts speak for themselves: when Civilian Paramedics are trained in military as well as policing tactics in order to support their local law enforcement agencies, more lives are saved than through the normal and conventional ways of EMS.

Most of South Africa can be considered a high risk environment, especially in the realm of emergency medical care. I do believe that this course would make an immerse difference in your day –to-day lifestyle, the way you deal with emergencies, as well as your every day work on the South African streets.
