First Care Provider: Stop the Bleed!

About Our First Care Provider Course

Course fee: Free


Empower yourself as a First Care Provider. As a civilian, you will often be the first responder to possible trauma events. Become confident in trauma response by learning the skills to provide immediate lifesaving care in your community. In this short online course you'll receive Stop the Bleed training, including learning to use a tourniquet and control bleeding.

This course is appropriate for community members without prior emergency responder training or healthcare practitioner experience. No prior training or certification is required.

You may be invited to participate in an optional follow-up survey on how this training has been useful, or additional hands-on training once we are able to resume onsite instruction of this type.

Upon successful completion of this course, students receive a UCLA Stop the Bleed Kit (while supplies last). Students whose goal is to work on an ambulance, or become a firefighter or paramedic, are better served by taking our Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) course.

To enroll, use the Enroll button above. You will need to log in to (or create) your account on our website. You will be directed to our Course Cart but no payment information will be required. When you reach the confirmation page, click "My Programs" in the top menu bar and then click "First Care Provider" to launch the online course.
