Students in the Health Occupations Technology program at the Clearfield County Career and Technology Center (CCCTC) recently completed their STOP THE BLEED training.  In a STOP THE BLEED® course, students learn three quick techniques to help save a life before someone bleeds out: (1) How to use their hands to apply pressure to a wound; (2) How to pack a wound to control bleeding; (3) How to correctly apply a tourniquet. These three techniques will help assist in an emergency and potentially save a life. The Clearfield County Career and Technology Center is proud to highlight the talents and accomplishments of its students.  For more information about the CCCTC and its programs please visit us at
