Yes, the basic is first day, advanced is second day. Basic is a pre-req for the advanced. The advanced includes basic compressions. Instructor class is overlapping those 2 classes starting March 1, ending at 1:00 PM on the 4th.
For even minor get-offs, a head or neck injury is a very real possibility. This class gives you a system to deal with things instead of running around in circles.
The trainer is Vickie Sanfelipo, she developed the course, awesome instructor. Anyone taking the instructor course will be nationally certified to teach. Lead instructors need to have at least an EMT 1 background (don't have to be current, just medical background)
If you take it with a riding buddy, he may save your life and vise-versa. Thanks, Barb
