ITLS High Threat maintains the core concepts and evidence-based ethos of ITLS. In high threat environments, providers must recognize that during conditions of active threat, priorities of care may change and medical care may become simply another tactical decision.
ITLS High Threat, based upon current CoTCCC and CTECC guidelines, has been developed to save lives both while under immediate threat and once the threat has been mitigated.
Instructor materials for this 16 hour ITLS course will be released soon.

ITLS Military adapts proven techniques taught in the civilian ITLS course to the military environment where limited resources are the rule, not the exception.
