Request for Information

1. Introduction

This is a Request for Information (RFI) pertaining to the
Canadian Forces Tactical Medical (CF TAC MED) training course
for the Department of National Defence (DND).

The purpose of this RFI is to provide industry with an early
opportunity to comment on DND's requirement for the Canadian
Forces Tactical Medical training course. This feedback will
assist Canada in ensuring that its requirements are in line with
industry standards.

2. DND's Requirement

The Canadian Forces Health Services Group (CF H Svcs Gp) has
identified a critical requirement to conduct a formalized,
enhanced tactical medical training program targeted primarily at
Medical Technicians prior to their deployment on high risk
missions and operations. Over the past several years, the
Canadian Forces Tactical Medical (CF TAC MED) training course
has become a critical component of pre-deployment preparedness
in meeting this critical requirement.

The standard of battlefield medical care is based on the
principle of Combat Casualty Care (CCC) which is a step-wise
approach composed of different levels of skills sets utilized on
the battlefield. The Canadian Forces currently has two levels:
Combat First Aid (CFA) and Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC);
both of which are designed for non-medical personnel and are
taught by CF H Svcs Gp. It is imperative that Canadian Forces
medical personnel have advanced knowledge in CCC principles and
the requisite competent skills to continue to teach CFA and TCCC
courses, as well as providing the next higher level of care on
the battlefield, as expected. Although CF H Svcs Gp has
qualified medical personnel that could instruct CFA and TCCC,
they do not possess sufficient human resources to deliver an
enhanced tactical medical training course for CF medical
personnel. This course is tailored to provide development and
enhancement of their existing skill set to achieve
high-readiness status for deployment or any other types of
