First Response courses and e-learning

What is needed?

Leaders, managers and supporters in Scouting must hold a first aid qualification, the minimum level of which is the First Response course (Module 10) run by the Scout Association.

A higher level (known as a Full First Aid certificate) is required for some adventurous activities. You can find out more here.

Hampshire Scouts run a number of First Response courses each year and these are listed on the county website here.

Does my existing qualification count?

There are a number of external qualifications which cover similar content, which can be compared against the syllabus. Anything not covered needs to be covered by self study or similar.

Two of the most common certificates are the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) approved 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) and 3 day First Aid at Work. We have produced some e-learning that covers the additional content. A printout of the last page can be given to the Training Adviser alongside the certificate.

The e-learning can be accessed here:
