Course Description

GRP-019-AR - Basic Tactical Medical Training Program (BTMTP) (Program AR+ICE)

Target Audience/Disciplines

Applicant must be a law enforcement officer/agent with arrest authority in the prevention, detection, apprehension, detention and/or investigation of felony and/or misdemeanor violations of state, local, territory, or tribal criminal laws.


The Basic Tactical Medical Training Program (BTMTP) is a 4 day, highly intense training program requiring a physical demand on the student and consists of lecture, labs and skill practice. The law enforcement officer will gain knowledge and skills necessary to mitigate the loss of their life or the life of another while in an active threat environment. The skills will address treating life-threatening injuries in an austere environment with limited equipment, lack of medically-trained personnel, and prolonged time to evacuation. The training program incorporates tactical problem-solving into any situation in which casualties are incurred from an armed, hostile opponent and focuses on saving “preventable deaths,” while achieving three primary goals: Treat the Casualty, Prevent Additional Casualties and Continue the Mission.

Integrated Capstone Events (ICE)

The Center for Domestic Preparedness developed the ICE program to provide the opportunity for multiple disciplines to work together in a final culminating exercise. The ICE promotes an interdisciplinary response to an all-hazards mass casualty incident where first responders and first receivers are challenged to perform functions such as initial call-out, scene size-up, rescue, decontamination, pre-hospital treatment, crime scene management, evidence collection, and hospital response. Response operations are conducted within the Incident Command System (ICS), with students filling various roles based on their experience and course objectives.
