Possible "Stop the Bleed" Class in Nashville
« on: June 19, 2021, 07:21:09 PM »
I have contacted an instructor who would be willing to conduct a class in Nashville.  The minimum attendance is eight but can seat more than that.  The class would probably be scheduled about the July 30-Aug 1 timeframe so as not to conflict with any scheduled AS events.  Border raiders are welcome.  Please respond to this thread your interest in attending.  Your response is not binding; I am just trying to gauge interest in this valuable training.

Having attended one last year, I can heartily recommend it. Others in the class said that it was in a similar vein as a combat casualty course. The material was interesting and not draining at all. The class is fairly quick, and won't put a squeeze on your schedule.

Been keeping my ears to the ground and watching for any of these classes to pop up within acceptable travel range.
Would love to take one of these classes, and Nashville aint so far away. Gonna be in Idaho that weekend, though. Sigh.

The Stop the Bleed instructor has notified me today that the weekend of July 31 will not work.

What kind of interest is there for a Sept. 25th class date?

Hey Black Knight,

Looking at the calendar, there are two shoots on the weekend of 9/25; one in Memphis and one in Cleveland. I'd love for more of the TN cadre to be able attend without creating a conflict. Would your Stop The Bleed instructor have availability for an alternate weekend where there aren't any shoots scheduled?

That's what happens when you look at the AS event schedule with your eyes half closed. 

Based on the instructor's availability and AS event schedule, it looks like we will have to postpone scheduling the class until late spring.

Let me enthusiastically endorse this course.  Dangerous Cook and I took it about 2 years ago and  even though she is a nurse (RN) and I am a former EMT, we found it quite beneficial.  It is not hard but very valuable!

The STB instructor has formally put our class on the calendar for Saturday, October 16, 2021, at 10:00 am.  The class will run from one to two hours based on participant questions.  The class will probably be held at Skyline Hospital in Madison, TN.  More details and sign up will occur as we get closer to the date.  Please put this date on your calendar now.  Thank you for your responses and interest.

I'm interested, but don't have September schedule nailed down. My brother wants to do an AS in MO that weekend and Toby wants to do KD that weekend. Hmmm. This is probably more important.
