Course Description

Prolonged Field Care (PFC, also Prolonged Casualty Care (PCC)) is a well-established military practice of providing field care for a patient beyond doctrinal planning timelines in a resource-limited environment. However, most PFC training fails to give providers holistic training by making access to and evacuation of the patient(s) notional. PFC+ helps address this shortfall by incorporating rope rescue techniques for access and initial evacuation.

PFC+ is a 5-day, hands-on training that combines ANR’s Limited Resource Rescue – Basic and Austere Emergency Care courses to provide an intense test of the medical provider’s skills.


  • CLS/TCCC, EMR, or above
  • The Austere Emergency Care course consists of the basic and advanced tracks. They are complementary and can run concurrently, with many common educational objectives and shared scenarios. These courses consist of both an online Learning Management System followed by a 4-day in-person experience. Completion of both portions constitutes the 40-hour continuing education “AEC course.”
