Empowering People to Save Lives.

The UK ATACC course is not for profit and all income is fully re-invested in course improvement.

Faculty members receive no remuneration or payment for their work and it is through their passion and dedication, over the last 20 years, that the course is now so world-renowned.

During our time we have become the most advanced trauma course available in Europe and are fully accredited and approved by the Royal College of Surgeons, London. The course has a truly international faculty with over 100 instructors working in at least 10 different countries.

This gives the ATACC faculty the necessary standing to write and validate our own courses and also to offer credible governance to other agencies.

The ATACC Course is fully accredited and approved by the Royal College of Surgeons, London.
