This class was tough.
The course is good in the sense that it enables you to become CPR/AED/First Aid certified.
The highlights of this course were labs, practicals, and working with others in emergency like situations. I learned a lot. I learned how to perform CPR, how to treat for shock, how to use an AED, how to splint, how to backboard, how to treat victims with first aid principles in things such as spider bites, poisoning, broken bones, etc.

Advice for students:
You need to study A LOT. Be careful with how the wording is on tests. One word can completely change the answer. Such as using should instead of may, or using can instead of will. When studying, make sure you know all the specifics, not just the generalities. It helps to go to the end of the chapter when you are reading for homework and ask yourself the situation questions. It will test you to see how much you learned. You will find similiar questions on the exams. Also, to prepare for the Red Cross First Aid, and the Red Cross CPR/AED tests, the modules online will help as well as you may be able to find the actual tests beforehand.
