1st Response part 1 - Life Support


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 3 x live on line sessions part 1, 2 and 3, attend a short pratical session and complete the Girlguiding 1st response e learning

You will need to book yourself onto a session 2 and session 3 that suits you. 

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 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.
