Medical training at Multinational Base Tarin Kot: Members of the Afghan National Army’s 4th Kandak, 205th Corp Medical Company, gathered at Multinational Base Tarin Kot this week, to learn how to train their own in medical evacuation.
Referred to as train-the-trainer, 25th Combat Aviation Brigade crew members, along with Slovak, Australian and U.S. Army mentors, guided ANA soldiers through a three-day course allowing them to travel to forward operating bases and train Afghan medics on medical evacuation procedures in the future.
The students are already trained in first aid and medical care, but most of the soldiers have not gone through any medevac procedures.
During the course, students went through classroom and practical-exercises of step-by-step procedures in communications, patient treatment and packaging, and ground-air evacuation, culminating in hands-on patient preparation and aircraft loading on an UH-60 Black Hawk.
