Did you know that someone who is bleeding severely could bleed to death in as little as five minutes? That’s often too short for first responders to arrive on the scene, which means that citizens like you could be given the opportunity to save a life. A Stop the Bleed class is the best way to protect yourself, your family, and your community and understand how to rapidly respond to life-threatening bleeding.
What Is a Stop the Bleed Class?
Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign dedicated to educating everyone, regardless of age or occupation, on the best practices to help in a bleeding emergency. Bystanders can react immediately and take life-saving action before an ambulance arrives. By equipping more people with this knowledge, the odds of someone being nearby and able to help in an emergency increase. Currently, almost 2.5 million people have completed a Stop the Bleed class.
Why Should Every Gun Owner Take a Stop the Bleed Class?
There are many different reasons why people own firearms, but one stands out above the rest—to protect. While you can protect yourself and your family with a firearm, you can also protect them with first aid training. Life-threatening bleeding incidents can happen any day, not just during a mass casualty event or natural disaster. Being prepared is a key part of gun ownership, and it’s also a big reason why every gun owner should take a Stop the Bleed class.
Where Can You Take a Stop the Bleed Class?
At Soteria Training Academy, we offer Stop the Bleed training classes during our Concealed Carry (CCW) courses and as separate classes.

- An introduction to patient assessment
