Podcast Episode 28: Critical Skills for Prolonged Field Care Providers

Training materials were the number 1 most requested item from our SOMSA AAR.  We have put out other training recommendations in the past but wanted to also highlight some important skills that will help you identify gaps in your PFC training program, plan future training and measure progress.  We will get more into this cycle in the future however, this should be a good place to start.  Many thanks go out to Andrew who labored over many versions of the list over the past few months.  One last thing, be sure that you are already at 100% T for Trained on your TCCC task list.  There is no use in getting into PFC training prior to mastering TCCC.  If you see something we may have overlooked and would like to see it on future versions, please comment below and let us know.
