Stop the Bleed

Learn the basics of emergency bleeding control products and techniques. The course instructor will present products and applicable skills associated with the basic Able Shepherd emergency vehicle kit to include: Scene assessment, primary assessment, wound packing, and tourniquet placement.

  • Effective August 1st, 2021 we will require that individuals testing for Protector Certification-PHASE 2 be Stop the Bleed certified.
  • Stop the Bleed certifications are good for two (2) years, upon which time individuals will need to re-certify to stay current.
  • This course is open to the public and they do not need to be in the Able Shepherd program or have taken any prior classes from us.
  • Dates/times for our Stop the Bleed classes are listed below.
  • and on our class calendar: https://ableshepherd.sites.zenplanner.com/calendar.cfm

We feel that to “Take Care of One Another” emergency medical aid knowledge is a must.

Stop the Bleed classes are available to a member’s family at the discounted price of $100 instead of $250

If you have any questions pertaining to this Stop the Bleed requirement, please feel free to reach out to us.

Best personal protection training program you will find. If you want to protect yourself, your family, and your community this is the place to learn, practice, and grow. Great people, great facility, and great training. Take the introductory POP (protect our people) class and you’ll understand.

So glad to have found out about Able Shepherd from a good friend of mine. I took the POP (Protecting Our People) half day course and was amazed by the organization, professionalism, and breath of skills taught and practiced. I hope to be returning soon to continue my training.

Can you truly say you would know what to do in a situation where you had to protect yourself, loved ones or even a stranger? A year and a half ago I would have flippantly said “Oh sure” but truly being afraid of my own shadow. After taking the POP Class and beginning my journey in the Able Shepherd program, I look back and see how naïve I truly was. I have gotten more out of life, live more confidently and feel more secure when I am with my child and by myself from the training and relationships that have been built in this program. When Jimmy, the Able Shepherd Staff and members say, “Come for the training, stay for the family”, every ounce of this is true. I encourage everyone to at least take the POP class. You can never go wrong with Able Shepherd’s training.

Ive been through the Able Shepherd program and have been being trained by the instructor's for some time now. Never once have i left a class and not learned somthing new. It really is the most applicable training to civilian life iv ever seen. Including personal protection, self defence with all weapons types and family protection. It makes a fire arm a capability not just another untrained tool.

The Able Shepherd training program is outstanding. The entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Not only do I feel the training received is unparalleled , but they also deliver it in such a way that creates a community based atmosphere to the program, which makes you feel as if you’re part of something special. I would highly recommend the Able Shepherd program to anyone who is looking to learn the importance and skills of protecting yourself, your family, and others around you.
