    Thanks for this link. I signed up locally for myself and my two sons for a class in a couple of weeks. I may take my son's scout troop as well. The scariest first aid situations I have been in have required either CPR or bleeding control in a remote location.

    I hope you like the training! I think the Boy Scouts would like it, too.

    My wife is a teacher and all the school staff just went through the Stop the Bleed training this week and some parents donated bleeding control kits to the schools.

    I’ve been looking for this training in the Nashville area but I can never find it. I think it’s an awesome idea.

    Thanks to this thread, my son and I took this class tonight. It was very well done and they covered everything you really need to know in an hour. I have taken several different first aid courses, but tourniquets have always been taboo. That is no longer the case. My son was able to quickly apply a tourniquet to my arm and stop my pulse. He will be getting a CAT tourniquet for his school backpack.

    The nurse/instructor is going to come to us and teach our entire scout troop.

    Thanks for the tip. I highly recommend this class!

    Training tourniquet's should not be applied tight enough to stop a palpated pulse. It is not necessary to apply the device that tight to teach or verify competency with the device.
