You would need to take the instructor class again. Don't forget about the instructor student ratio, either.Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk

Quote from: CAPR 60-3When first aid or higher medical training is required for qualification in a particular specialty, the expectation is that the qualification course includes both knowledge and practical skills training; first aid courses taken on-line only are not acceptable...
Quote from: CAP9907 on March 10, 2019, 12:30:34 amit's actually in 60-3, correct. Still beats no 1st aid training at all..
Quote from: Stonewall on March 09, 2019, 11:57:02 pmA CAP Talk win!I created this thread on 1 Jan and today, 9 March, we completed our first aid training through ECSI. 15 squadron members now meet the first aid training requirement for GTM-3. The ECSI curriculum is easy to use and leaves a lot of flexibility to the instructor. It meets the intent of CAP's requirement and covers everything I've ever taught or seen taught in a "basic first aid course." I added some Ground Team related tasks to the curriculum like litter carrying and I went through building an individual first aid kit for being a Ground Team Member.A big thumbs up emoji to my ANG Wing's Medical Group for loaning us manikins, AED trainer, and every bit of first aid training gear we could ever use. They even told us not to worry about replacing some of the expendable items like roller gauze, latex gloves, 4x4s, and even triangle bandages. They had 20 CAT tourniquets so I went ahead and taught those, to include self application.Since I've been in CAP, going on 32 years now, first aid training seems to be one of the more elusive tasks to get signed off for GTM. Not that it's hard to find, but to pay upwards of $100 for a 3 hour class is a steep request, so ECSI is definitely our go-to choice from now on.
