What is the Bleeding Control Course?
The Bleeding Control (B-CON) course is part of the “Stop the Bleed” campaign and is designed for those who have little or no medical training but may be called upon to respond to and deliver trauma care and bleeding control prior to emergency medical services (EMS) arrival or in an austere environment. It teaches bystanders the initial steps to take to care for bleeding patients and the training you receive can be applied at home, at school, in a mall, on the job or anywhere you encounter a situation that requires immediate action to “Stop the Bleed”.

This course is endorsed by the American College of Surgeons and the Department of Homeland Security. Students will receive a completion certification following completion of the course.
