C.R.A.S.E. / stop the bleed:

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (C.R.A.S.E.) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. In the past two decades, horrific mass shootings have been thrust into public consciousness. The Stop the Bleed course prepares you to respond to emergencies where there is a high suspicion of massive bleeding from an injury. The class will go over proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use your hands, dressings, and tourniquets to control life-threatening bleeding.

Child and babysitting safety / CPR:

The Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) program from ASHI gives teenagers and young adults everything they need to know for safe and successful babysitting. From dealing with parents and children to key safety, caregiving, and first aid tips, the magazine-format CABS guide and vlogger-style video make learning fun. Students who successfully complete the course receive a certification that is good for 2 years.
