PREFACE The Commander, United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) directed that all Special Operational Forces (SOF) Medics be trained to a single, interoperable standard. He directed that the USSOCOM’s Advanced Tactical Practitioner’s (ATP) Critical Task List (CTL) be implemented into all SOF enlisted medical training as a minimum standard. Upon completion of SOF medical training, all SOF students are required to sit and successfully pass the USSOCOM Advanced Tactical Practitioner’s Certification Examination as official recognition and proof of the student’s knowledge of the CTL medical requirements. This study guide reflects the hybrid nature of the USSOCOM certification examination. Where applicable, SOF medical requirements and standards have been merged with the DOT based curriculum. The DOT/Civilian standards of care are always applicable to the military but there may be times when it is difficult to achieve. Many questions on the examination will be appropriate in either setting. Where so, there has been an attempt both on the examination and in this study guide, to differentiate the standard of care in the pertinent setting. The ATP student will find that like the Department of Transportation’s Curriculum and the National Registry’s Certification program and any other “Medical Certification” process; most of the material covered within the pages of this study guide will be covered during the student’s formal phase of instruction. However, some of it may not. The student must recognize that not all subject material can be taught in a formal setting. It is the ATP student’s responsibility to use this study guide to complement their formal instruction in preparation to successfully pass the USSOCOM ATP Certification Examination.
