Jonathan Randall said:I got certified as a First Responder (advanced first aid/cpr) while a volunteer for the Coast Guard. Our division put it on and the training was very worthwhile and more in depth than the basic first aid stuff we got in crew training.
I also took a full semester class in college in Advanced First Aid and CPR, but that was twenty years ago. Periodically, I've taken Red Cross Standard First Aid/CPR which is basic good information but less than First Responder and FAR less than EMT.
My wife is a reserve puddle jumper (9 years active) that's where she got her EMT certification out of Alaska. If I were to do it all over I'd go CG over Army.........but don't tell my wife I said that.
