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.

You will need to attend a local training session and complete the 1st Response e-learning.

The 1st Response training session can be delivered both in person or virtually using an on-line platform. The training is 6 hours long and can be delivered in one day or split into 3 x 2-hour sessions. Anyone attending a virtual training will need to meet a trainer in-person to complete some practical elements.

The e-learning can be completed before or after the full training course, and must be completed in order to be recognised as a first aider in Girlguiding.

You will learn:

  • Simple life-saving first aid skills that are relevant to your role
  • Develop confidence and skills required to cope with emergency first aid situations
  • Understand how to manage these emergencies.

Your 1st Response training is valid for 3 years. You’ll need to redo the full 6 hour training and e-learning in order to make sure your training is up to date to keep all members safe.
