The Scout Association strongly recommends that all adults in Scouting with a leader, manager or supporter appointment should hold a current First Response certificate or equivalent at all times. Whilst everyone is encouraged to maintain their qualification at all times, the certificate must be valid at the issue of the Wood Badge and for appointment renewal
First Response Course
This 6 hour course will provide the minimum standard of First Aid knowledge required, and validation of training module 10 for those people working towards the Wood Badge The certificate is valid for a maximum of 3 years Qualifications gained outside Scouting are also accepted and can be used for module 10 validation See details of equivalents here: http://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources/1789/first-response
First Response renewal
A 3 hour refresher that renews & updates your First Response qualification for 3 years. It must be carried out before your current qualification expires. You can only renew your qualification twice before repeating the full course or an external equivalent.
