First Aid/1st Response

First Aid/1st Response

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 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.

Refresher courses, lasting 2 hours, for those Leaders using their updated qualification within their unit only, are also available on request.
