What if I have a current First Aid certificate – do I still need to do 1st Response?
Possibly not. We have provided the list of requirements of 1st Response training. If you have recently done a course which meets these requirements, (or most of them) then you simply need to offer this as evidence to your Local Training Manager (LTM) or Training Adviser.

The syllabus has recently been adapted and now focused on conditions where prompt recognition and/or life-saving treatment is required. In addition, some conditions have been included because they occur most frequently on incident/accident reports submitted to both the Scouts and Girlguiding.
Our trainers will add some additional content not listed on the syllabus and this will be made clear to participants and will not detract from the core syllabus and training plan.
Joining Information will be emailed to you at least 24 hours before the session. Please look out for it – it may be in your spam folder!
