    Glancing over the one thread I would discourage anyone attending a on-line course for Emergency Medical Services of any kind.
    Only a hands on training will give you the needed training for helping others.
    Contact your local fire department or Ambulance service and they can point you in the right direction.

          Red cross has a new class: Wilderness first aide. Can't remember the exact title but that is basically it.

          Check their website.

                Combat Life Saver certified. It is good for immediate care for trauma but you'll still need a doctor obviously.
                You learn application of tourniquets, IV's, treat for shock, pressure dressing, chest seal, needle chest decompression, splint, disembowlement, evaluate a casualty, etc.
                I'd say less than an EMT but better than what most people know.

                  Much Better because your training came with mental toughness. Put most sheeple in a high stress environment and even what training they do have goes out the window.
                  Don't sell yourself or your training short. :)
