    I’m extremely grateful for the resources you have here that can help others develop an experiential learning and preparedness as well for their first aid exam! Seeing how the concepts for first aid would be rudimentary and consistent, as long as the individual takes the chance to get themselves exposed to whatever mode of studying that helps them retain more memory, the higher the chances they’ll have to succeed!

    And not only that, it gives the confidence to not ironically panic or stumble in an exam that would be asking them what they would do to assess certain situations in relation to first aid.

    I took the First Aid Principles quiz… thought I was doing rather well. 🙂 I ended up with 7/10 and a ranking of “first aid expert”… but the type of person I am says that I wouldn’t be satisfied with anything less than 10/10. Anything less than that indicates there’s something I don’t know and that’s too much of a risk.

    Wow, that was an eye opener! I’ve done some work as a crisis counselor but that’s after things like first aid are already done. I’ll have to brush up, apparently. 🙂

    This was really informative.
    I haven’t been certified for about 8 years now. So this is going to be really helpful when I go back for my certification.
    Thanks for posting.

    I have my CPR/BLS and first aid certificate but this site ids very informative. My daughter is a ninth grader and they have made it mandatory for them to have CPR/first-aid certificate before they graduate. I am definitely going to have her use this site to help her learn it easier. The quizzes are awesome!

    From reading and talking to others and having had my first aid certificate for a few ;years, I let it lapse for about 10 yrs. But the knowledge stays with you. Why my BF had a stroke I knew what I was seeing and was able to call the ambulance before too much damage was done. It’s never too late to learn first aid and it will always be waiting in the background until you need it
