The Red Cross usually teaches this as a 16-hour classroom lecture course. Our Council volunteers (EMTs, Nurses, Trainers, the occasional MD or Paramedic) teach it as an indoor-outdoor course of lectures and live-action scenarios. When the course syllabus was last updated a couple of years ago, the national Red Cross leadership sent a team to our course at Maumee to take pictures and observe how we do it, and several of our volunteers are pictured in the official handbook for the course. Howzat?
I am very proud of T.J. and Dakota. They did very well. Their expertise will add another layer of awesome to our Philmont trek next summer.
