This basic training course is for individuals with no healthcare or law enforcement background and teaches bleeding control principles so they are able to provide immediate, frontline aid until first responders are able to take over care of an injured person. This is a lifelong skill that all individuals should learn but hopefully never use. Recommended for ages 9 to 99.

What is the difference between the class formats?
In-person classes are offered at all of our hospital locations and in the community. Participants will leave classes with resources to take home and/or emailed electronic copies to keep on hand.
Virtual classes are are live, online classes. These fun interactive classes allow you to get your questions answered in real time from the comfort of your home.
On-Demand classes are self-paced and can be completed at anytime to accommodate a busy schedule. Once registered, your link is live and you can begin viewing the presentation. Most on-demand classes offer a free resource packet to be mailed to your home after the program.
What can I expect at a car seat check event?
Ascension SE Michigan's Injury and Violence Prevention Specialists are national certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST) through the National Child Passenger Safety Board (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) after completing an intensive, 40-hour course. Our CPST provides the most updated information while educating families on specific safety features for both their car seat and vehicle. You can expect to be involved in the installation process and are encouraged to bring the child to get the most out of the experience. Families will leave with resources and a better knowledge of how to keep their child safe in and around vehicles.
Do you provide car seats for free to families in need?
Yes! The Ascension SE MI Injury and Violence Prevention Program has a limited amount of car seats for all ages. To qualify for a car seat (per the State of Michigan), parents and caregivers must show either a referral form from a caseworker providing social services indicating the need for a free car seat or proof of current enrollment in one of the following programs for the child receiving the seat at the time of installation educational session to the technicians. Caregivers must also sign and submit a qualifying program cover memo to the technician during the seat check. Qualifying programs include:
• Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) • Family Independence Programs • Partnership. Accountability. Training. Hope. (PATH) Cash Assistance • Maternal Infant Health Provider (MIHP) services (or other home visitor program) • Refugee Assistance Program • Social Security/Disability • Children's Special Health Care Services • Bridge Card/food assistance • MI Child • Court referral or other court document • Head Start or Great Start • Referral form from a caseworker providing social services • Medicaid • Children with Special Needs Fund • Proof of child in foster care by foster parent or reunification plan • Emergency replacement after fire, flood, or crash (crash report or fire report required) • Native American Outreach Program
Please Note: We do NOT distribute infant rear facing only (RFO) carrier car seats. We do have convertible (rear to forward facing) car seats. A child weighing between 5lbs - 65lbs will ride safely in a convertible car seat when installed correctly. We also have forward-facing combination seats, high back booster with harness, and big kid booster seats.
