Stop the Bleed

Minutes count! Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as 5 minutes. That’s why bleeding control—keeping the blood inside the body—is the purpose of STOP THE BLEED® training.  A bleeding injury can happen anywhere. We’ve all seen it happen too often—on the news or in everyday life. Life-threatening bleeding can happen in people injured in serious accidents or disasters. Instead of being a witness, you can become an immediate responder because you know how to STOP THE BLEED®.

Intended Audience:

A STOP THE BLEED® course is for people who are interested in learning this lifesaving skill. The American College of Surgeons STOP THE BLEED® campaign has trained over 1 million people including students, teachers, and community groups.

Bloodborne Pathogens

ASHI’s Bloodborne Pathogens training program includes information that will help students understand what bloodborne pathogens are and how risks of exposure can be reduced for themselves and others. This bloodborne pathogens certification course assists in satisfying the training requirements of the U.S. Department of Labor, OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030).

 
Intended Audience:
ASHI’s Bloodborne Pathogens course is ideal for any individual or employee who has a reasonable anticipation of contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials as a result of performing designated job duties.
 
Certification Length:

Students who successfully complete the course receive a certification good for 1 year.

Child and Babysitting Safety

The new Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) program from ASHI gives teenagers and young adults everything they need to know for safe and successful babysitting. From getting started with their business, to dealing with parents and children, to key safety, caregiving, and first aid tips, the magazine-format CABS guide and vlogger-style video make learning fun.

Pre-Requisite:

None, however CPR/AED and Basic First Aid certification strongly recommended

Intended Audience:

Teens and young adults interested in a babysitting business, or who have responsibility for younger family members. 

Certification Length:

Upon successful completion of the course, students receive certification card valid for 2 years. 

Emergency Medical Responder

The ASHI Emergency Medical Response training program provides a detailed and comprehensive approach for managing out-of-hospital medical emergencies prior to the arrival of EMS.

The program is designed to provide non-EMS responders more depth and exposure to standard first aid training topics to provide richer and more advanced training. It meets and exceeds workplace first aid training requirements and satisfies the desire to learn more than just basic first aid without the burden associated with EMS provider training and certification. 

Emergency Medical Response provides comparable training to that of Emergency Medical Responder, the base-level training for EMS providers, although the program is not intended for training EMS providers or preparing students to be eligible for EMS provider testing and certification.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for individuals who are not EMS or healthcare providers but desire certification in Emergency Medical Response, such as:

  • Law enforcement officers
  • Correctional officers
  • Security personnel
  • Event and crowd control staff
  • Lifeguards
  • Park rangers
  • Workplace Emergency Response Team (ERT) members
  • Disaster team members
  • Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members
  • Athletic trainers
  • Outdoor guides
Course Length 

47-50 Hours, Initial Class / 16 Hours, Renewal Class

Certification Length:

Upon successful completion of the course, students receive certification card valid for 2 years. 

State Licensure and Credentialing of Emergency Medical Responders

An individual who has been trained and certified in ASHI Emergency Medical Response will not be licensed or credentialed to practice emergency medical care as an EMS provider within an organized state EMS system. EMS provider licensing and credentialing are legal activ­ities performed by the state, not ASHI. Individuals who require or desire licensure and credentialing within the state EMS system must complete specific requirements established by the regulating authority, typically a state EMS agency within the state health department. The ASHI Emergency Medical Response program is not intended to prepare individuals for national certification, licensure, or credentialing as an EMS provider.

Wilderness First Aid

Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. With an ASHI Wilderness First Aid class, first aid providers in a remote outdoor setting will be better prepared to respond with wilderness first aid training when faced with limited resources, longer times to care for someone, and decisions about when and how fast to evacuate an ill or injured person. This comprehensive 16-hour wilderness first aid course meets or exceeds the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines, 2017 Edition

Wilderness First Aid Course Includes

Information-filled slide presentation covering wilderness and remote first aid from a basic understanding of emergency response in an outdoor setting to specific techniques and considerations for a wide range of injuries and illnesses.

  • Preparation and Assessment
  • Preventing and Caring for Injuries and Illnesses
  • Environmental Hazards
  • Other Wilderness Considerations
Pre-requisite
