I did it the other year before Herrick, the front of my certificate says we covered:
Basic Anatomy and Physiology
Basic Life Support/CPR/Choking
Basic Nursing Care of the Casualty
Rloe of the Team Medic
It sounds alot but you'll be taught everything you need to know even i passed it and i'm mince.
I agree mate, our course lasted one week and when we saw how much info there was to take in, it looked nigh on impossible. However our instructor was awesome and went over everything enough so even the most solid of lads in our group passed first time round.
