That might be a little more than I would be interested in. The Dark Angel course was on par with what I was expecting to get out of it. I wasn't exactly looking to get any certification. Just better my knowledge and confidence.
But for that price, I wouldn't turn it down if I had the money. My spousal unit is a nurse so any additional skills would complement hers.

Does the accredited give you protection

To my knowledge, having a certification does not mean any specific protection. Non-licensed folks have a degree of protection under Good Samaritan consideration, but nothing protects in cases of negligence. It might be beneficial if you appliance tourniquet in a bleeding emergency according to the guidelines and a subsequent injury occurred. Better to have a lawyer deliver that opinion though.

The Good Samaritan stuff is covered near the beginning of the course. It did not address any accreditation outside of licensed individuals like EMTs or nurses.

Not worthless, perhaps not applicable to you specifically. It is useful for those in the public safety professions.

I agree with Whiskey but only if my organization paid for it.

Maybe the EMT's know - is there anything to be gained if you are already an EMR?
