The course also reviews steps to take in order to be prepared to respond to a bleeding emergency if one should ever arise. Points of discussion for preparation include, but are not limited to, suggested items to include in a bleeding control kit and placement of a bleeding control kit. No prior medical training/knowledge is required for this course.
