Instructor Team Positions:
our instructor team is made up of very dedicated, skilled, and professional individuals. most of our instructors are students (or alumni) of the storrs campus. we have two roles for instructors at uconn rescue.
stop the bleed (Stb) instructors must meet a certain set of criteria from the national stop the bleed campaign to become an instructor. they must apply, interview and complete 8+ hours of in-person 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 amazon.com based on the number of classes they teach.
stop the bleed instructors will be selected on an annual basis similar to the process for bls instructors below.
if you are not already a stop the bleed instructor but would like to become one, we routinely offer a class in November. you must apply, complete an interview, and be selected for the instructor class. applications typically open in October and are announced through our email list and the uconn student daily digest.
Preference is given to students who are already certified as emr, emt, aemt, or paramedics. the stop the bleed campaign requires medical certification/licensure to complete the instructor program.
