As a veteran Firefighter with over 10 years experience, I must say this is the most impressive online course I've ever taken. Oftentimes, I have to take renewal training via online courses which typically are boring and robotic. This course was very detailed - very well thought out. I liked the natural sequence of the material. Overall, the course was super informative and easy to follow. I will be sure to tell my colleagues about this course.
Great job Blue Spear!
by Luther Mcclellan
As a nurse and community member, I found this course to be an excellent supplement to first aid and CPR techniques. Basic, friendly-language and clear directions on how to stop bleeding will help all people, both medical and non-medical, provide assistance to someone in need of help. What an easy way to teach many people how to help a family member, friend or community member.

An education I hope I never need
I completed this course and found the information very useful. The topic is concerning when you think about it, but very needed in today's reality. I found the videos to be clear and easy to understand. I recommend this to anyone who cares about family and friends.
by Alain Troadec
A MUST take program!
Great course for any and all individuals looking for life-saving skills for themselves and their family. It absolutely will make the difference between life and death in any situation.
by Dr. Heath Sharpe
Must have skills for everyone, just turn on the news for our reality. From at home mishaps, car accidents to active shooter situations. These are life-saving skills that you hope you never need to use, however, if you do, you are relieved to have the knowledge to save either your life or someone else's. The information is clear, to the point, and follows with an explanation to put it all together. Every household, business, and school needs to have this knowledge in place to save lives. Thank you, Blue Spear, for being a leader by spearheading and providing such crucial skills to save lives.

ABB Inc. Active shooter Video Training Review
by Gabriel Ciuculin
Very well presented videos, good representation of real situation and clear explanations. I would like to see more of them, very educational. I suggest offering periodical refresh classes as never used (hopefully) skills wears out. Well done!
Miami Dade County Healthcare Preparedness Coalition - Great approach!
by Marilia Van Keeken
This comprehensive course on active shooter survivability and bleeding control has some great information. Having sat through an in-person training and gone through the basic program, I must say that I like the flexibility the online course provides. You can go through the modules at your own speed, stop if you get interrupted and resume at a later time. The videos are high quality and the information is straight to the point. A hands-on practicum is included and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I received a lot of positive feedback from coalition members that loved the training and instructors' approach. The virtual course would be a good way to train any organization with employees or members with limited "free time" or trouble letting big groups step away from the workplace.
Kudos BlueSpear for a Job Well-done!
by Michael Lupari
BlueSpear Solutions does an excellent review of basic human anatomy along with life-saving bleeding control maneuvers that are essential for victim survivability in emergency settings, such as active shooting events. The information presented throughout this course is easy to follow for civilians but is comprehensive for medical professionals. As a highly trained Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) and EMT- Paramedic, I was enthusiastic to review the presented training courses. As a nursing professional, I understand first hand that the education provided in this course will most definitely save lives and limit casualties when violent attacks are carried out by our fellow citizens. Bleeding control and airway management skills are two of the most basic skills each of us can learn to help others in crisis. The impact we can make to save another person in distress is well worth your time and effort to review the material presented. I highly recommend these courses, as well as the Blue Spear Advanced Bleeding Control Kits to all civilians. Preparedness is KEY to saving a life. Each day, I sure hope that I will never have to use my training and skills in such a setting, but I am now better prepared to intervene and ACT should I, or my family be face to face with an active shooter or other emergency events. More so, this training should be mandatory for each Drivers License candidate. We can ALL make a difference! Great job BlueSpear!!!
by E Brooke Lupari
Content is presented in a manner that can be understood by both a lay person and medical professional. The course was very thorough but to the point. Nurses especially those in schools would benefit tremendously from a course like this!
Great training program!!
by Justin Mccareins
As a former police/swat officer, I am familiar with combat casualty care procedures. It is obvious that BLUE SPEAR SOLUTIONS program was designed by individuals who have extensive training and first responder experience. In a perfect world, this type of training would be mandatory for high school students! I am passing it on to my loved ones and I will recommend it to anyone who will listen. J
by Calin Pastiu
After going through the online video training I felt that I got everything that's important and then some, to protect myself and anyone else if I was ever caught in a similar situation. Through my career as a firefighter/paramedic and an RN working in a busy ER, I took various training classes, face to face and online. The information provided by Bluespear Solution's training program covers all possible angles and even goes into details to show you how to properly apply pressure to key areas of your body to stop bleeding while enabling you to use your hands for other things. Being able to convey that message and show it in details, to a degree that ANYONE can understand the concept, is externally important in a scenario where time and resources are limited. Totally amazing job.
America's next great idea!
by Ryan Reynolds
Video segments were concise and informative. Having a visual aid really drives home the strategy for non-medical personnel that needs this info. Instructors articulated these life-saving tactics in a memorable and easy to comprehend way. This is essential life-saving info everyone should be exposed to.
by Emily Drake
Great Training Program
by Lauren Siddens
This program is focused and detailed to train anyone to save a life in a frontline trauma situation. It is clear, concise and easy to understand. I highly recommend this course and hope to see this training throughout the country.
I think the title is perfect for the segment
by Phil Vasta
The text was very informative and I walked away with a much greater knowledge on this subject.
Thorough, yet simple to learn
by Roger Stacey
The instructions from this program are very thorough, and well taught by experienced people. It makes learning these life-saving techniques less intimidating and simple to learn, and easy to apply, which will help save lives.
A little knowledge goes a long way
by Heath Clark
In my 10 plus years as a firefighter paramedic, regardless of the scenario, the result has always been more positive than it potentially could have been, when the persons involved had knowledge on what to do and how to react prior to my arrival. I can't stress enough how important I believe it is for everyone to arm themselves with this information.
A state of the art program!
by Kaori Tanaka
I am an emergency medicine and tactical physician who treats victims of traumatic injuries as part of my daily job. Too often many victims are unassisted by the public and must wait for professional EMS providers for any medical assistance. Some will suffer life-long complications due to the delay in care on scene. While one may think that waiting seconds or minutes for help will do no harm, traumatic injuries need to be identified and treated immediately for the best possible outcome. The CoASSIST Program offers a one of a kind opportunity to the community to learn basic medical skills that can save a life. Once completing the program, each participant will have gained the knowledge and competence to respond to an active shooter or traumatic situation and assist the victim with basic medical techniques. Through lectures, videos and hands-on participation, this program will have any non-medical person armed with the knowledge and tools to potentially save a life. I recommend this program to any community, school or corporate entity looking to empower each individual to be prepared for any traumatic/active shooter event.

The instructors do a wonderful job of not only teaching and demonstrating the techniques but also explaining their purpose and why they're important. This is great information and training that anyone can benefit from.
by Anna Smith
Hopefully, I'll never have to do this, but I do feel more comfortable if I'm in this situation. Great videos!
Best Program Ever!!

There is nothing else out there as good as this course. Blue Spear goes above and beyond yet keeps it fun and simple so anyone can learn. I Highly recommend!
by Joel Campbell
This program makes learning life-saving techniques easy and breaks the steps down into a great, self-paced, online learning experience
by Chris Brank
There's an incredible depth of knowledge and experience in these training, but it's taught in a way that's easy to understand. It's a small price to pay for the potential to save someone's life (or your own)!
Active shooter survivability
by Sandra Moritz
Good points, techniques. Needed for any major institution including schools.
Best online course ever!
by Chris Wilson
I have been working as a Law Enforcement Officer for over 10 years and this program is one of the most detailed courses that I have taken. My wife and I took the Co. ASSIST© in-class course several months ago. We loved the instructors and materials covered. When we heard there was a new online class available were a bit hesitant to enroll because we thought the quality of instructing would be diminished. To our surprise, the online class was spectacular. The content and step by step video instructions are instrumental in teaching civilians life-saving measures. This program should be utilized by schools, businesses of all sizes, and even individuals. Having knowledgeable civilians educated in bleeding control techniques on the scene of a catastrophic event will help to save lives! Well done Blue Spear!
by Chelsey Million
All the information provided was very clear and easy to understand. Excellent job!
by Ashley Brandt
I am prior Navy and I found this course to be extremely insightful with helpful life-saving techniques. I used to specialize in training my command on what to do in the case of an Active Shooter incident and this went above and beyond. I wholeheartedly recommend Blue Spear Solutions' training program!

Excellent Training Program
by Diana Holder
Blue Spear has created an in-depth and engaging program to train in active shooter scenarios. Whether an individual wanting to gain more knowledge or a company looking to train your staff, this course is top-notch. Greg and his team have years of experience to help prepare you, your family, and your company for whatever comes their way.
Teaching essential life-saving skills anyone can benefit from
by Janice Bator
This strategy and training program is very informative, with hands-on demonstrations, clear and concise instruction, for not only a beginner but also experienced first responders. This course clearly has great tactics to not only to improve shooter survivability but also introduces key concepts such as keeping hands free... which is priceless in any life or death situation. I would highly recommend this training to anyone. In today's times, you never know when all that stands between death and survival could be the skills and knowledge you gain from this program. I know I would rather be armed with the tools and techniques and be able to save a life, my families' lives, or even my own.
Great training videos!
by Roddney Hackstall
I'm a 20 year Army combat tested and proven veteran with extensive first aid, emergency aid, and combat-related trauma injury treatment training, and I was really impressed by the professionalism and accuracy of these training videos. I shared the information I learned with several colleagues and they all agree! Great job and thanks for putting this valuable training all in one place for us to learn and prepare conveniently at a fraction of the industry standard cost.

In a lot of cases, bleeding can be a preventable cause of death. A person with the correct training can effectively intervene to save a life. Just like Basic Life Saving (BLS) skills, any individual can become familiar with basic bleeding control techniques. You do not need to be in the medical field to take control. This online presentation is very professional and easy to follow and understand. It is simplified to allow any layperson to understand the topics. It allows for individuals to work at their own pace. Follow the course up with hands-on teaching and the student will definitely gain the knowledge needed to save a life whether the injury is caused by an active shooter or merely a home or office accident. The Individual First Aid Kit you receive with the program is awesome. I carry it with me in my car and at work. I am always prepared.
THIS is what we need!
by Edward Phaeton
You hate to think that you would need these skills at some point in your life, but will be so grateful to have them if needed. The course is very detailed and easy to understand. You can tell that the instructors know what they're talking about and do a very good job at making it easy to understand. I have no doubt that this course will save lives! This is a must.
by Jan Tripician
I have been a Practicing Paramedic for 25 years and I have not seen a video presented this good in a long time. Very informative and very professional.
