TAGS ® was established by Safe Tactics BV and have been providing bespoke

training and consultancy for Military, Law enforcement, Rescue and other governmental

special operations units since 2001. All over the globe.

In Spring 2013 we formalized this concept and continued under the brand name

“Safe Tactics Academy”; with focus on high angle tactical and rescue operations.

Early 2018 we acquired TACTS BV; a well known tactical training and consultancy

provider with an impressive portfolio and track record. We also merged the

specialized high angle rescue and trauma care portfolio of another company within

the group; Ascent Safety BV. Whereas Safe Tactics and TACTS where focussing

on tactical end users; Ascent Safety focussed on governmental rescue organizations,

NGO’s and private sector companies.

Joining forces we decided to continue as TAGS ® Academy; a true ‘one stop

training provider’ for high risk operations. We noticed that ‘lessons learned’ in a

specific field could be applied to under different circumstances. Resulting in highly

effective, super safe; field proven solutions, that help save lives.

At TAGS ® Academy we take great pride in the services we offer. We will ensure

you are dealing with a highly qualified and trained project team who will provide the

proverbial “exceed client’s expectations and demands”.

Lessons learned on recent battlefields have proven to be very successful

in other high-risk areas. One of the clearest examples is modern tactical

medicine. When providing first aid in remote areas or hostile environments

(AMOK situations, terrorist attacks, shootings) the same principles can be

applied in order to facilitate better care for the patient; resulting in better

chance of survival and less residual damage.

Course levels vary from short and practical first aid courses for industry,

aid workers, expats, outdoor enthousiasts and expedition members to comprehensive

Combat Trauma Casualty Care (TCCC) for Military, Law Enforcement

and medical personnel. Our courses are practical, provide lots of hand

on practice and focus on modern insights and the use of modern equipment

that are proven in battle and terrorist attacks around the world.
