Dear 100 Hour Board,

What is the course load of Health 320 (Advanced First Aid & Safety) like? I'd like to take it during either spring or summer term, and I'd like to know what to expect as far as homework, tests, and quizzes are like so I can plan accordingly.




Dear Bearded,

It looks as though none of us have taken that particular course, and thus can't give you any insider information on it. I'd suggest you look up past syllabi for the class from professors you'd be interested in taking it from.

I took HEALTH 320 a few years ago during summer term and the course load is actually pretty light for a 3-credit class. The only homework we had was reading from the textbook, and all our quizzes and tests were on information found in the book or in lectures. Because it’s a first aid class, most of the tests and quizzes were about first aid techniques. The final exam required demonstration of proper techniques, but we had plenty of opportunities to practice those beforehand. Overall it was an easy A, and as a bonus you get first aid/CPR certification if you pass.
