stop the bleed (stb) instructors must meet a certain set of criteria from the national stop the bleed campaign to become an instructor. They complete hours of instruction on trauma and bleeding control to begin teaching. these individuals teach stop the bleed classes to the greater university community. they are rewarded through our stipend program based on the number of classes they teach.
American heart association (AHA) basic life support (BLS) instructors are certified by the national body under the uconn rescue training site. all instructors must complete 8+ hours of in-person education, an online component and a student teaching component of the class. they are rewarded through our stipend program based on the number of classes they teach.
