STOP the BLEED Training Partner
Our Train-the-Trainer program is approved by the ACS, Committee on Trauma and is designed for individuals and organisations who want to join our national network of STOP the BLEED registered providers. This provides an opportunity for you to offer the program as a ‘stand-alone’ workshop to your clients, or to embed the key critical components into your current everyday First Aid Training programs.
With written approval, the current Committee on Trauma ‘Train-the-Trainer’ workshop has been modified to ensure that we comply with the most up-to-date information incorporating national guidelines for Australia.

Become a Bleeding Control Instructor
First Aid Trainer
This workshop is critical for all current First Aid Trainers. With the recent update in the Australian Resuscitation Council ANZCOR Guideline for Bleeding control, it is essential that trainers UPSKILL to the application of commercial tourniquets and haemostatic dressings and include the skill into everyday First Aid Training.
- Be a certified Bleeding Control provider (Stop the Bleed workshop)
- Make an application and provide evidence of industry experience
- Attend a Train-the-Trainer workshop
- Deliver a workshop under supervision
In the event that a First Aid provider must respond to life-threatening blood loss and minutes count, it is our responsibility as educators to prepare the student and instill confidence.
The Train-the-Trainer workshop will provide all applicable studies relevant to the teaching of commercial tourniquets and most important, how to avoid areas that have resulted in high failure rates. If we are to embed additional skills and knowledge into our everyday First Aid courses, then we need to be accurate and eliminate areas that result in skill failure.
Incorporating arterial tourniquets and haemostatic dressings into everyday First Aid
Helping First Aid Training Organisations become compliant
For individuals and organisations who operate under a state or national regulator, ASQA for example, there are standards that must be met to maintain compliance. Under the standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTO), Clauses 1.13 – 1.16. A trainer’s vocational competency means that they have the particular skills and knowledge relevant to the industry area in which they are delivering.
Your RTO must ensure that:
- training and assessment is only delivered by trainers and assessors who have current knowledge and skills in vocational training and learning, and
- it has ensured all trainers and assessors undertake professional development in the fields of the knowledge and practice of vocational training, learning and assessment, including competency-based training and assessment.
Delivering nationally recognised First Aid units of competency
Units of competency: define the skills and knowledge to operate effectively and how they need to be applied to perform effectively in a workplace context. There are currently 8 levels of HLTAID units and each one, where it applies, states that First Aid must be “in accordance with Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines“.
To maintain compliance, it is now critical for all First Aid Trainers and organisations to include the use of an arterial tourniquet and haemostatic dressing.
