I'm a maybe

I'd be intersted, but it depends on when, where and how much. I'm on vacation now, so plenty of free time on my hands... but not so much money to go stay in another city for too long to complete the course.

I'm assuming this is the basic first aid/cpr course, and if it is not so different than the canadian course, it should only last 2 or 3 afternoons. Something you could do in a weekend.

Have you heard anything about any further/specialty courses offered here in English, perhaps one to the tune of wilderness first aid? The basic course (again I'm basing my assumptions on a canadian red cross course) delivers the technique you'll need to know given the EMS arrival time, in a city, of between 15-30 minutes. Anything longer than that and you'll need to be doing more to save a victims life. ie- remote settings.

Thanks guys (and girls), I have also got about 5 maybe 6 folk from my Uni who are keen to join, so I think numbers are OK. Still "the more the merrier!/ 다다익선!"

I'm for sure interested, but can't 100% commit at this time - count me in for 80% likely to attend!

I've sent a message to them letting them know that there is a strong desire to have an English course. Hopefully I'll hear back soon with some details. Coming from the Red Cross, I highly doubt that there will be much (if any) wilderness aspect to the training. It would be nice to see a wilderness first aid, wilderness first responder, or (keeping my fingers crossed) a wilderness EMT course offered in Korea.

Have you thought about talking with the Red Cross folks on bases here? I know they do instruction all the time at Osan and if we have the numbers here at USAG Humphreys as well.

If you want me to I will talk with the Red Cross folks here at USAG Humphreys and see if we can set sumthing up for First aid and CPR. Nothing Wilderness EMT like but good for certification etc.

We could even turn this into a winter meet and greet. Three indoor climbing walls here at humphreys we could hit in the evenings after class etc.

Let me know.

Later

Mike

Thanks Mike, can they do courses for non service persons? The more options we have the better either way. As long as it's a proper 1st aid course and OK with the base command and course instructors, I think that would be good. Can you sound them out and see what they length, cost and feasability would be? We already have about 20 folks interested. Thanks, your suggestion as ever is really appreciated.
