First response courses in county Autumn 2019

By |

1st Response is Girlguiding's own first aid course

It will train you to provide first aid to members in emergencies - in or outside of your unit meeting place. The course was created specifically for members of Girlguiding and The Scout Association.

 

What will I learn?

Gain simple life-saving first aid skills that are relevant to your role.

Develop the confidence and skills required to cope with emergency and first aid situations.

Understand how to manage these emergencies.

 

Who should take this course?

Everyone in a volunteer role is encouraged to complete 1st Response training. It is especially useful for Commissioners, Leaders, Young Leaders, Unit Helpers and Unit Occasional Helpers. Rangers can also choose to do the course as part of their personal development.

 

The following members are required to attend the training:

Those completing the Leadership Qualification without a valid equivalent first aid qualification and Commissioners.

 

Who must have a valid first aid qualification?

One person in every Unit Leadership team must have a valid first aid qualification.

 

If you already have a first aid qualification, you may not need to attend our 1st Response course.

 

How long is it valid for and how do I renew?

Your 1st Response training is valid for three years from the date that you complete the course. After this time, you can attend our 1st Response Refresher course to ensure your knowledge is up to date.

 

We recommend that volunteers who completed 1st Response more than three-and-a-half years ago attend the full 1st Response course, or equivalent first aid training, to refresh their skills.
