You could do volunteer firefighting after gaining the prerequisite certifications.My husband and I are planning to take a CPR class soon. Does anyone have any other suggestions for improving our skills in medical response/first aid, etc.?
Another option is to go to your local community college and take anatomy and physiology 1 and 2. I took anatomy 1 as an elective and learned a ton of useful applicable insight.
Hands on experience will bolster your confidence in a real situations.
