Module 10 – First Response

Date(s) - 20/11/2022
9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Doing things safely is fundamental to everything we do in Scouts, and completing the first aid training – also known as First Response course – is a key part in that.

This course aims to cover the skills and knowledge necessary to enable volunteers to manage an incident and provide basic first aid. The first response programme is developed in collaboration between the Scouts and Girlguiding, with a common syllabus, resources and acceptance between the two organisations.

You can find out if you’re required to complete the first aid training by checking Chapter 16: Roles Tables in POR.

If this training is required for your role, you are asked complete it in within your first three years of volunteering, and to renew it every three years.
