From what he's describing, I think he was the guy in the table next to me, front right corner.  He had the med bag.  Only guy I saw with a RAT.

Correct

where were you sitting, PK?
i was on the side with the sliding door, sitting by bass monkey and changemyoil and london and just4kiks

Sorry yeah that was me at the middle table with the red bag and small IFAK. I figured I'd bring that stuff as it was suggested to compare to see if there was anything I should add to it. I pretty much leave that bag in the car in addition to a smaller version of it in my range bag.

Would anyone have interest in a first aid course that DOES give a certification at the end? I spend a lot of time learning from  my medics,  even had the opportunity to train with an SF medic,  and have private sector training as well. Not offering it yet because I have no certification as a first aid instructor yet,  but plan on getting that as soon as finances allow,  and am trying to gauge interest.

I'd be interested either way. Just would need enough lead time to plan on the financials and around life schedule
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

The big problem with this type of trading with certification is cost. The insurance/liability risks are huge for anyone saying I certify that this person is trained to do this, that and the other.

Which is why I'm getting an instructor cert before teaching, so I have some sort of official paper to point to that I know what I'm talking about.
And I don't plan on making the training very expensive. I'm doing it more as a passion project than to make money.

I won't be able to attend the class because it would be more than I'm comfortable doing.

Example: I'm okay with doing anything first aid up to and excluding chest seals (poking the needle for the air to escape is iffy).  So for me, this class may go beyond what I'm able to handle (knowing my limit).  Especially if I don't review/practice it all the time like how a medic would.

Either i didnt explain well or you misunderstood.

You as the instructor will be come civilly liable for the actions of any student you certify, If they try to help some one and mess it up and they point to you as the person who taught them you as their teacher may be sued. To negate this it you would carry an insurance policy in perpetuity the cost of this insurance is going to be extremly expensive and as such the cost of teaching the classes would be costly.

I found this thread a little too late!  Would be interested in attending a class if you ever decide to hold another one!

Wouldn't Hawaii's Good Samaritan Law avoid this possible issue?  As long as the instructor is not certifying professionals?
