Today - I finally jumped through the last hoop in the "seemingly" never ending steps in the application process - yippee. It was an 8 hour CPR and First Aid Course. The instructor didn't have time to go over everything and there were a lot of questions on the test about material he never talked about. Thank God my old brain still remembered most of the material from my Corpsman days. I scored 100 on infant CPR and 90 on adult/children and the first aid, so I'm happy with the outcome (proves I'm not totally brain dead - yet). I thought if someone failed they'd have to retake the course another time - but one woman scored a 40 and he let her retake it 3 times (with lots of help from him) until she got the minimum score. I'm just hoping if she ever needs to perform CPR on someone - she'll know what she's doing.
Worst part is I have to wait until at least the 20th to find out if I'm in for the Fall or not - oh the agony of it all..
