TEMS - Tactical Emergency Medical Support Training


About the course…

  • The TEMS course is a highly energetic fun filled practical experience. We have implemented a modular approach to try and make it more financially feasible for the average medical person. It consists of a Medical module and a specialist module. You have to do the medical module before you decide what specialty you would like to specialize in. The specialties are Urban, Rural and Maritime Tactics. You are more than welcome to train in more than one.

  • Introduction to TEMS
