Any other companies doing discounts?

National Stop the bleed day is this Thursday. Anyone going to or holding a class for it?
I am doing some refresher clinics at my 2nd gig, Clark County Shooting Complex in Las Vegas, NV.
I made some affordable wound packing trainers out of some yoga blocks from Amazon:

I learned about making the blocks and the effort behind the Stop The Bleed from this podcast:

After watching Modcast 188, I went to bleedingcontrol.org and found a stop the bleed course near me. I'm glad I went. I had no medical training before the class; I went with a pen and notebook and learned about tourniquet usage and wound packing.
