    Got my first aid and CPR card in the mail today. Which was a quick turnaround, so with my other exams done, that is me finishing up all the requirements.

    Gotta say, on the first aid thing, I feel kinda ripped off. One of my neighbors is something important in MDA, and it turns out the reason I was assigned to the 44 hour class and tests for the in person stuff was because I was the only 28hr person who signed up this go around. So yeah that meant I had to take the 44hr test.

    However my certificate is only for 28. Part of me kinda feels like maybe I should have gotten the 44hr one since I did all the more complicated stuff.

    I feel dumb asking this, but is there no appeal process you can leverage? Or, would you rather just accept it for what it is so you can move on with the actual teaching part?

    You probably have to take the 28 hour course as a prerequisite for the 44 hour course...

    No. You just have to pay more money and do 2 months of online learning instead of 1.

    I could probably fight with MDA about it if I really wanted to. However, I don't need a 44hr course(that is more for life guards and such). My paramedic neighbor says that it really doesn't matter. If the EMT's show up and need help, they aren't going to check my card first so long as I appear half competent. So for now I'm not going to worry about it.

    One of the more entertaining and in the end enlightening threads here lately.

    +11 on the Bs dial.

    Mossad rocks. MDA stumbling in the dark.
