Bleeding Control for Emergency Service Providers
Course Description

Welcome to the Bleeding Control for Emergency Service Providers course!

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 emergent situations. 

Secondly, it helps Emergency Service Providers become more effective partners to community responders when they arrive on scene.


Not only will Emergency Service Providers understand the basic skills a community responder will apply, but this course also explores how Emergency Service Providers can smooth the transition of care from a community responder to trained emergency response professionals.
