We in Scouting have a First Aid MB which is basic first aid. Also other merit badges have first Aid requirements such as Emergency Prep, wilderness survival, backpacking, athletics, Fishing, just to name a few. That is why the first Aid MB is not a requirement to take BSA Lifeguard. The first aid MB is basic, then we have first aid requirements for the activities that require them.

They charge $80 apiece here for the course. I think $$ is one reason why it's not standardized. Our local Fire Department does a great job for free.
