Introduction: Trauma is the leading cause of mortality and one of the main causes of disability among the active populations in the battlefields. Therefore, trauma education is an important need for asymmetric warfare, which is met through training based on existing needs and possibilities. Methods: In this qualitative study, validated using Delphi technique in Tehran in 2019, the participants were selected from the experts and activities in the field of trauma in asymmetric warfare. Inclusion criteria included willingness to participate in the research, history of treatment activity, and trauma training in asymmetric warfare. This study is based on the two axes: (1) Investigating existing upstream documents and resources on trauma in asymmetric warfare. (2) Conducting structured interviews (based on training elements and trauma experiences in asymmetric warfare) with trauma experts and professors in asymmetric warfare. Results: The results obtained from the above resources, are defined and classified as 10 element training model (Akker). These results and related tables have also been reviewed and validated by trauma experts. Conclusion: The achievements of the present research explained the dimensions and indicators of trauma needs based training in asymmetric warfare that is an effective approach to increase the effectiveness of trauma learning and training in asymmetric warfare and increase the cost effectiveness. It is also an effective approach to organize trauma preparedness for all troops present in asymmetric warfare and can be presented as an operational protocol in terms of methodology and roadmap.
