Stop The Bleed
Course Description: Stop the Bleed is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons and the Hartford Consensus that provides individuals the skills and basic tools to stop uncontrolled bleeding in an emergency situation and save lives. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use dressings, and tourniquets.

Examples of potential students include construction workers, farmers, hunters, anglers, and outdoors enthusiasts, and everyone over the age of 13

Levity, life experience and expanding beyond the expected or required knowledge base to provide additional insight on the “why” of certain physiological phenomena. It was great, and I learned a lot.
The instructor delivered information in a clear manner using terms appropriate for the training audience. Good use of examples, experiences, and humour to keep everyone engaged. Answered all questions thoroughly and professionally. I will be recommending the Stop the Bleed course to all my coworkers, family, and friends. I am also looking forward to taking more training with First Aid Plus.
I really appreciated the extra time the instructors took at the end of the stop the bleed class to show me the CPR compression’s and the percentage that I got to reassure me that when I had to preform CPR on someone recently that I was doing it correctly and the support they gave me.
Your classroom is very clean and professional-looking! It is a very motivating learning environment. And I really appreciated the 15% discount on first aid equipment. Bethany was a great instructor. I particularly appreciated the fact that she was able to answer my questions regarding our scope of practice as lay rescuers/first responders.
