Bleeding is the number one cause of death after the initial injury.

Someone can be injured in their home, for example, broken glass, chopping food, lawnmower or other power equipment accidents, and falls. Firearm accidents are a real thing or an encounter with a violent individual does happen every day. Natural disasters such as tornados and earthquakes can cause bloody wounds. Vehicular accidents can cause severe trauma requiring immediate care to stop the bleeding. On-the-job injuries, especially at construction sites or in manufacturing facilities are a very likely place a traumatic injury can occur. Life-threatening wounds can occur literally anywhere.


In these situations, often your actions or inaction in the immediate seconds after an injury can determine if the injured person lives or dies. That is why it is so important that you can identify the injury, react to the situation and immediately stop the bleed. Those are the thing you’ll learn in Stop The Bleed.

Our classroom size is small on purpose so that we can ensure each student receives the attention they deserve to become a more confident to save a life. Our Stop The Bleed instructors are passionate about the subject and enjoy sharing their experience and knowledge with each student.

More about Stop The Bleed

STOP THE BLEED® was launched in October 2015 by the White House, with a call to action to begin training more people to become immediate responders during a bleeding emergency until professional help arrives. The ACS STOP THE BLEED® program is operated under a licensing agreement granted by the Department of Defense. 

Stop the Bleed Vs. Similar Courses

Stop the Bleed is unlike a CPR or basic first aid course, because we dive deeper into controlling and stopping heavy blood loss due to traumatic events such as severe work place injury, auto accidents and gun shots. Our Red Cross certified First Aid for Severe Trauma (FAST) class is technically a “Stop the Bleed” course as well, however the FAST class was designed and developed for large groups of high school kids and is more focuses on presentation and lecture and less focused on the necessary hands on skills building that you’ll receive in our certified course from the American College of Surgeons.

About Your Instructors…

Your instructor is certified by the American College of Surgeons and the American Red cross to instruct you on how to stop life threatening bleeding. Our instructors are passionate about the subject and go into great detail on the tools and techniques used.
