So I am currently attending high school, but after high school, I am planning to become a tactical medic for the Special Weapons and Tactics team, hopefully in Los Angeles or Las Vegas. Now all of the other posts, I never got the information I need. Can anyone tell me the requirements for being a tactical medic? For example, do we attend both EMS training and police academy like that? Something related to those topics. I would really like to discuss this with someone who is currently a tactical medic OR used to be one. Thanks
