Teaching/learning First Aid skills

I think most people would agree that the BEST way to really learn
and REMEMBER a skill, is to teach that skill to someone else.
Have the older scouts teach the younger/newer scouts the BASIC
second class and first class first aid skills, under the supervision
of a qualified leader, and you end up with better trained OLDER scouts!
And then one more point of clarification concerning the BSA reguired
CPR training: IF a scout attends a ARC CPR 4 hour course, and gets
a card, that covers the 3 hour requirement for FIRST AID and Life saving
MB's? Unless of course the MB instructor wants to run his own 3 hours?
I would think that the MB instructor would have that lattitude, if he
wants to insure each scout is up to date etc. I guess you can not be
over trained for FIRST AID.
