I can think of a couple of reasons why Red Cross First Aid training is
required over First Aid Merit Badge:
- It is an outside organization doing the certification vs. self
certifying. (what training and skill level must a First Aid merit badge
councilor have/demonstrate before being allowed to teach?)
- First Aid merit badge training levels vary greatly from troop to troop,
and camp to camp (which is a whole other discussion).
