Welcome to this ProTrainings video online training course on catastrophic bleeding and the use of tourniquets and haemostatic dressings. Recent changes in the advice for first aiders have meant that training in tourniquets and haemostatic dressings are now required in certain sectors as well as many instructors also need updating. This course covers the different types of tourniquets and haemostatic dressings in short videos and the considerations needed for their use.

In the course, we discuss various items which are all available from us on our online store or you can call us if you need more advice. We also sell instructor packs to help with the teaching of catastrophic bleeding.

The way the course works is to watch some videos followed by knowledge review questions and you complete a test at the end. You can start and stop whenever you want and return to the course where you left off. You can watch again any video at any time during and after the course.

On each page, on the course, you can select text to read about the subject covered to support the video.

Once you have passed the test you can print off your completion certificate or at any time from the home page of this course where you can also print off your Certified CPD statement and the evidence-based learning statement.

With this course, there are many resources and links to support your training and you can access these from the home page of this course. We are updating these resources regularly, so have a look to see new material.

Even after you pass your test, you still have access for 8 months from when you started the course so you can review videos and material if you need to refresh your skills or see new videos.

Finally, with all our online courses you can choose to receive free weekly refresher emails every Monday to keep your skills fresh and to see new videos that we add to the course. These emails also include news from our blog. You can select from the home page to receive these and you can stop them at any time.

Thank you for choosing ProTrainings and we hope you enjoy your course.
