Catastrophic Bleeding

Back Home » First Aid Training » Annual Refresher Upskilling » Catastrophic Bleeding

Who is this training for?

This training will enhance any first responder or workplace first aider’s skills towards the controlling of catastrophic bleeding. We also actively encourage non trained members of the public to apply to learn these life saving skills.

Experienced required?

Nil required, but those who have had some formal first aid training will develop their current skill sets.

How long will it take?

To complete this qualification learners should expect to attend two hours of fully immersive and practical hands on training.

What will you learn?

The person next to a bleeding casualty may very well be the one who’s most likely to save them from bleeding to death. By learning how to Stop the Bleed, you’ll gain the ability to recognise life-threatening bleeding and act quickly and effectively to control bleeding.

This short 2 hour courses provides a brief introduction to catastrophic haemorrhage with simple, practical interventions which can be used by anyone to save a life including:

  • Understanding Scene Safety
  • A unique, rapid casualty assessment methodology
  • The use of Tourniquets – commercial and improvised
  • The process of Wound Packing – haemostatic agents and improvised
  • Triage


Learners will complete a range of practical skills continually.
