1st Response is Girlguiding’s own first aid course
The syllabus has now changed and can be delivered as a 6-hour face-to-face training session OR as three x 2-hour online sessions, one short face-to-face practical session. Plus, an E-learning module for every member to complete. This is classed as the ‘Full 1st Response Course’ and must be completed every three years to remain compliant.
MODULE ONE* Is an online E-learning which covers…
- A) PLANNING & PREPERATION
- B) RESPONDIING TO AN ACCIDENT/INCIDENT
- C) WHAT HAPPENS AFTER AN ACCIDENT/INCIDENT (which ideally should be completed before attending module two) See link for e-learning
MODULE TWO* These 3 sessions are…
- 1) LIFE SUPPORT
- 2) TRAUMA & INJURY
- 3) MAJOR ILLNESS
MODULE THREE* Is the face-to-face practical session, to complete the ‘Full 1st Response Course’.
NB: As from January 2021 Girlguiding removed the option of the 2-hour refresher 1st response course. The ‘Full 1st Response Course’ will need to be completed every three years (This includes all the above modules * * *)
If you have any questions, concerns or would like to be part of our 1st response team, please email Steph at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have alternative 1st Aid qualifications, are a Doctor, Registered nurse or Paramedic and have completed the E-Learning module for 1st response, then email me with your latest certificate or evidence of your qualification updates, and I will add your qualification onto ‘GO’. Plus, remember to send me your latest updates every three years, to remain compliant on ‘GO’.
Thank you and please take care to stay safe.
