1st Response part 1, virtual live online

1st Response Thursday 16th June, 7pm to 10pm - virtual live online.

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. It is not recognised as a first aid qualification outside of Girlguiding or Scouting.

We are offering 1st response as a blended course. To have the course recorded on GO as complete you will need to attend the the live on line session part 1,  and the 3 hour face to face session part 2 and complete the Girlguiding 1st response e learning

You must attend both part 1 and part 2 and the e learning within 3 months of each other but can do them in any order.   

If you have a first aid certificate you may not need to complete the 1st response course. If your certificate covers all of this list  and is at least 6 hours in duration you will only need to complete the Girlguiding first response  e-learning. 

The cost of the 1st response course is £20 and covers all parts. You will be emailed on how you can pay this. It is a legitimate unit expense and should be covered by your unit budget.
