We are able to conduct these sessions 1-on-1 and in compliance with all CDC, AHA and Virginia guidelines. Visit our website www.ses911.com to select your appointment time or contact us at [email protected]
[03/30/20] Per the Governor of Virginia's Stay-At-Home Order, through June 10, 2020 - SES will only offer Skills Session appointments for Healthcare Workers who can provide documentation that they are Essential Workers. These appointments will be conducted while respecting all social distancing requirements. These students must complete the Online training through the AHA prior to scheduling their session. Documentation of essential-worker status will be maintained in SES records. While the AHA has recommended extending certification expirations by 60 days, this is only a recommendation - not a mandate. Individual employers and licensing bodies may elect to not allow a 60-day grace period. For this reason, SES will remain open to Essential-Healthcare personnel only and only for 1-on-1 skills sessions made by appointment. To make an appointment, please contact us directly via email: [email protected] Our online scheduler will be operational for Healthcare workers only until the order is lifted.
SES is now closed for all open-enrollment courses through 04/18/2020. If you are a Healthcare Worker and you need BLS in order to work, please contact us at [email protected] and we will set up a 1-on-1 appointment for your Skills Session. This service is ONLY for Healthcare Workers who need their BLS certification. www.ses911.com
[03/17/20] Per the new CDC guidelines to Slow the Spread, SES will close all open-enrollment classes. Students currently registered may attend their classes as scheduled. We will continue to offer 1 on 1 skills appointments through 03/21/2020. After 03/21, we will suspend all services until April 5th 2020. If you are a Healthcare Worker who needs BLS Certification for work, we will work with you on a case-by-case basis.

The next 15 days are critical—avoid gatherings of over 10 people, stay home if you can, and avoid discretionary travel.

[03/14/20] Dear Students: There has been a delay in processing our ecard orders for "Heartsaver" ecards. We have ordered them, but they have not hit our distribution bank as expected. We have pushed the issue up the chain for a resolution. We appreciate your patience.
Statement from SES regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic.
At this time, we are continuing all classes and appointments as scheduled. Individual students are encouraged to use their own discretion in deciding whether or not to attend. If you would like to reschedule, as always, we do not charge a fee to reschedule due to illness.
We have always used disposable breathing valves for our training, changed lungs after each class etc and will add the use of nitrile gloves for all students.
We will also lower our students per class to ensure maximum social distancing during this time.
Any student who appears ill, has traveled outside of the USA within the last 14 days, or has a temperature of 100.0 or above will be denied entry to class.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

“The biggest mistake I see young medics making is over-packing. When you are packing your kit, especially your aid bag, there is a strong urge to "What-if?" every possible scenario. (This is the 180 degree problem from what I discussed earlier in the week about forgetting why you are there and what you should be carrying) As medics gain more experience, they develop a more realistic approach to what they should carry based on what they are likely to encounter and what they can reasonably treat. Ask yourself: 1)Based on the operational environment, what will be the most common injury pattern that I encounter? 2)What is the most life-threatening, yet survivable injury, that I can treat with my skillset? 3)How long will I have to treat and how close is the next level of care? 4)Where am I strong and weak as a medic? 5)What are my team mates carrying in the way of medical supplies and should/could they carry more?
If you over "What-if?" you will soon find yourself carrying a hundred pounds of gear. That is the point of diminishing returns, where you will be so impaired by the added weight, that you will cease to be an asset and will become a liability to your team.
Travel lite, less is more. Know your limitations and that of your gear, and know your operational environment. More on this, and the modular approach to kitting, in future posts.”

There are a lot of people asking about IFAK packing lists across social media. Always go with CoTCCC recommended devices and equipment. ***we have no financial disclosures***
Massive hemorrhage: Choose two CoTCCC recommended tourniquets
Respiration: Two vented chest seals, NCD if you are trained
Circulation: Two bleeders with hemostatic dressings or compressed gauze and elastic pressure dressing (ACE bandage), this could go into massive hemorrhage too.
Hypothermia: There’s nothing you can pack that’s effective
Additional: Shears, sharpie, cax card, gloves

I like to see evolving science
“Tourniquets can be a life-saving measure. However, to dispel a myth, you can and should place a tourniquet over a two bone compartment if possible. While high and tight is appropriate in CUF, when there is no time to fully assess a limb, there is no data to demonstrate that high and tight is better if there is time to assess a limb. TQs work better the lower they are placed on the limb. Two bone BS is a myth. .
The main determinant of effectiveness in well-designed tourniquets is the ratio of device width-to-limb circumference. The predicted occlusion pressure: (limb circumference/tourniquet width) × 16.67 + 67. This suggests, that be placing the TQ lower, it requires less pressure. They work better on the forearm or calf area and need not be reserved for the thigh or upper arm as is sometimes recommended for control of distal limb hemorrhage.
Furthermore, a previously tight thigh tourniquet can loosen after exsanguination from non-extremity bleeding (e.g., chest, abdomen, or pelvis injuries). A significant loss of total body blood volume will diminish the thigh circumference under and proximal to the tourniquet and will cause tourniquet loosening.”

On September 09, 2009, Safety Education Specialists was incorporated in Virginia. Our story, however, starts many years before.
In 2004, Allison and Fred met at the USNA. Allison was a DOD administrator, Fred was Security. After writing Allison up for a safety violation, they began dating. Their 1st movie date was reviewing bloodbourne pathogens training videos.
In the following years, Fred introduced Allison to safety training and the spark of Safety Education Specialists was born. After years of working for 10 different training companies, Fred and Allison started Safety Education Specialists.
From a dining room table, to dedicated training classrooms, Safety Education Specialists has grown to include several employees and to train more than 2,000 students each year.
