My point, which apparently went over your head, is that when IVs were taught, and needle decompression....these are techniques NOT TAUGHT to EMTs in many states. The overall point is that no, civilian jobs and MOS training are not always the same or even close.
Let's go further...an EMT cannot do what a 68W is authorized to do (depending on the state) and therefore is not sufficient.
And you're missing the point.They stopped teaching IVs a few years ago because CLS soldiers were giving people heart attacks. CLS is nothing more than tension pneumothorax, finding and plugging holes, immobilizing limbs, and clearing the airway.
