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.
Holding a current 1st Response certificate or other recognised first aid qualification is part of becoming a Leader in Guiding – as well as being a practical skill for any person to have. This qualification is suitable for anyone aged 16+.
This does need updating every 3 years if you are using the qualification when going away within Girlguiding.
The course lasts for one day, usually from 9am to 4pm. The cost, which can be claimed from your unit, is £25 for the full day.
Cheshire Border offers this opportunity six times a year, but Divisions and Districts may also request this, so that their Leaders may complete a First Aid course in their local area.
