Hey guys. I was just wondering about what an Advanced First Aid Course teaches and typically how long one is. Im already an MFR but i am asking this for a friend in CERT. He didn't want to go get the full 48 Hour CFR course. Instead he is deciding to do an Advanced First Aid Course and also a CPR/AED for Healthcare Providers (because it includes a BVM). He was wondering if the advanced course covered:

 

Backboarding

Obstetrics

 

 

Thanks, Ben

It's really going to depend on the center offering the course and what their curriculum.  This will vary between states, educational centers, and the country it's in.

 

We have members here from all over the world, so being specific as to the region you are inquiring about is important.  

 

Most advanced first aid won't cover much about OB or backboarding as those are generally considered EMT skills.  If you post with more detail as to where you are in the world and what center, we might be able to be of more assistance.
