Bleeding Control for Emergency Service Providers

Bleeding Control for Emergency Service Providers

Emergency Service Providers are skilled in administering life-saving skills in the case of an accident or mass casualty event; however, many seek training to master advanced bleeding control techniques. This course serves two important needs. First, it focuses on the skills Emergency Service Providers need to refine their advanced bleeding control techniques in a variety of emergency situations.

Secondly, it helps Emergency Service Providers become more effective partners to community responders when they arrive on scene. Emergency Service Providers will review basic skills that a community responder will utilize and explore the best transition of care from a community responder to trained emergency response professionals.

Who should take this class?

Designed for healthcare professionals and other personnel who need to know how to perform bleeding control for hemorrhaging wounds in a wide variety of in-facility and pre-hospital settings.

The online portion must be completed prior to the scheduled hands-on session. Students must arrive with online course completed and the certificate of completion printed out.
