Home » About Us

The ATACC Group was established due to the increasing demands for our bespoke training and casualty simulation.

We offer recognised and accredited Medical & Rescue Training courses supported by our robust clinical governance solutions.

Since 1998 we have developed and delivered one of the most unique and advanced trauma courses available worldwide, ATACC UK which is fully accredited and approved by the Royal College of Surgeons, London. This course has expanded and grown into our Intergrated Emergency Care Programme (IECP) which extends seamlessly from modern first aid through to advanced level care and is delivered within the private and public sector.

The ATACC Group have gathered all of the different skills and work – streams, developed from the original ATACC course and the International Faculty, under one single umbrella organisation to share our expert knowledge.

The ATACC Faculty

Over the last 20 years the ATACC Group has established a truly international Faculty with over 100 leading instructors, working in at least 10 different countries.

Our history and our Faculty gives The ATACC Group the necessary standing to write and validate our own courses and also to offer credible expert clinical governance to other front line agencies and emergency services. This can provide considerable savings and quality improvement when compared to traditional generic approving bodies.

All our training courses are accredited and approved by the world renowned ATACC faculty and our dedicated governance team ensure consistently high quality is maintained. Our courses are mapped against the Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) guidelines and meet the recommendations for Emergency Services Personnel.

By providing bespoke training and clinical governance solutions our Partners can build and develop a workforce that is highly trained and confident in the provision of Medical & Rescue Training.

The ATACC Group Innovate, Educate and Oversee.
