Try the Red Cross chapter locally. Approximately 2 - 3 years ago a new
course was put together called "When Help is Delayed" this course was
developed with the help of the BSA.
This goes over what needs to be taken into consideration, victim care, some
transport, a little more advanced first aid. Prerequisite for the course is
a current Basic First Aid certificate.
Also if you would want even more extensive training another Red Cross course
you might want to consider is "Responding to Emergencies" this course covers
more than just your basic first aid skills. Some examples are abdominal
eviseration, emergency child birth, etc.
Hope this gets you started.
