Congratulations and thank you for taking the first step to becoming an empowered initial responder.  Our class registry has just started so you may not find any classes in your area at this time, but we encourage you to check back to this website every couple of weeks as our instructor pool is growing, and we anticipate this registry to be more populated soon. In the meantime, please refer to the bleedingcontrol.org and the resources tab for initial information on techniques you can use to stop excessive bleeding.


Learn how to act as a responder and save lives when disaster strikes. Designed by the American College of Surgeons and the Hartford Consensus in response to improve victim survival rates during mass casualty events.

Participants will lean proper bleeding control techniques, using their hands, dressings and tourniquets. Each participant will receive a certificate of completion. This course is free, although registration is required.

The 'Stop the Bleed' campaign was initiated by a federal interagency workgroup convened by the National Security Council Staff, The White House. The purpose of the campaign is to build national resilience by better preparing the public to save lives by raising awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies and man-made and natural disasters. Advances made by military medicine and research in hemorrhage control during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have informed the work of this initiative which exemplifies translation of knowledge back to the homeland to the benefit of the general public. The Department of the Defense owns the 'Stop the Bleed' logo and phrase – trademark pending.
