    None as of yet, but I do have plans on taking National Outdoor Leadership School's "Wilderness First Aid" class in May (the earliest that a class is being held close to me). Till then I plan on keeping my wife close at hand (who happens to be an M.D.).

    Happy holidays and kind regards, Bill

    I am proficient with band aids, if you need more than that sadly you will die if relying on me.

    Former Paramedic/ FF, but my certs are all out of date by over 5 years and haven't worked in the field in 9. Thinking about taking EMT-B at the local community college next semester as a good refresher. Always keep CPR up to date.

    Retired Fed Firefighter. When they expanded into rescue they only wanted so many guys. I opted to get into Haz-mat. But I still had first responder training. CPR, etc.

    I am qualified as Carbonmated's assistant, I open the Band Aid tin and pass him the Band Aid and that's about my up to date medical knowledge. The last time I did a First Aid course I was in uniform and the teaching then was " First check patients breathing by lifting helmet visor, then remove his chain mail if necessary"......I am somewhat out of date with my training. :D

    Professional Rescuer for work, but if they offered wilderness first aid I’d take it. Training is rarely wasted.
