Who should take this course?
Everyone in a volunteer role with us is encouraged to complete 1st Response training. It is especially useful for Commissioners, Leaders, Young Leaders, Unit Helpers and Unit Occasional Helpers. Members of The Senior Section can also choose to do the course as part of their personal development.
The following members are required to attend the training:
- those completing the Leadership Qualification without a valid equivalent first aid qualification
One person in every Unit Leadership team must have a valid first aid qualification. Find out more about requirements for named first aiders in your unit.
If you already have a first aid qualification, you may not need to attend our 1st Response course. Find out what external first aid qualifications are accepted by Girlguiding as equivalent to 1st Response.
How long will it take?
This course takes six hours to complete.
