1st Response, Kirkintilloch
March 23 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
1st Response is Girlguiding’s own first aid course. It will train you to provide first aid to members in emergencies – in or outside of your unit meeting place. You will
- Gain simple life-saving first aid skills that are relevant to your role.
- Develop the confidence and skills required to cope with emergency and first aid situations.
- Understand how to manage these emergencies.
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. Rangers 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.
Anyone under 18 who attends the course will need to complete an information and consent form. Please email Katy Green at email@example.com for a form.
