Thanks for responding, guys!
Yes, I do have a few specific questions. I apologize in advance if they are overly basic as I have just started looking into this.
1) While doing research, I came across the SJA AMFR course and the EMR course offered by the Red Cross. I was wondering if you know the difference between the two, which is better and why you choose the one you did?
2) There's not a whole lot of information about the actual classes or curriculum on SJA's website. They kind of just give a basic outline of what they'll teach. What are the classes like? Is it mostly lecture-based or more hands-on? What are the tests like? Is it "hard" to pass (i.e. get 80%) or is much of it common sense?
3) The course is something like $650, which is pretty expensive. Having gone through the program, was the money worth it? Have you been able to use your certification since? If you have, what have you had the chance to be involved in?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts/advice
