OMT Basic

Operative Medical Training - Basic

The Operative Medical Training - Basic course is intended for everybody that works in the military, law enforcement, emergency medical services or fire departments.

Not just for medics, the 3-day OMT - Basic course give the individual the fundemental life saving skills they need with regards to bleeding control and hypothermia prevention.

(Passing a OMT - Basic course is an absolute requirement before attending any OMT- Intermediate or OMT - Advanced courses)

Bridging the gap between traditional medical training, live tissue training and tactical training, we provide a unique training environment.

Extensive use of bleeding simulators and other casualty simulation equipment force students to perform proper and effective interventions on a level not possible with traditional mannequin training.

The Operative Medical Training concept is designed to build upon the customers’ existing medical program. Students follow their normal procedures, while we through training and feedback improve and streamline their performance within the current framework.

This offers maximum skill improvement and efficiency while reducing friction and confusion from changing algorithms or strategies. This requires more adaptability, flexibility and skill from our instructors, but is what has made the OMT concept so well received by our customers.
