First Response during Covid-19

30th July 2020
Home / Updates / First Response during Covid-19 

The Scout Association have provided guidance and FAQs on first aid and refreshing first response at this time. 

We have produced a first aid guidance document on our approach in Hampshire for the renewal of certificates which includes a ‘Virtual’ first response and attendance at a practical validation session when we reach Green readiness level.

First Response courses

Please note that HQ have removed the refresher course so all members now need to undertake the six hour course every three years. 

In order to complete the First Response during COVID19 you need to complete the First Response e-learning plus a Zoom session.
Dates are on the First Aid page. This will give you a Virtual First Response valid for face to face Scouting.

Once we reach a Green readiness level, you will need to attend a short practical validation session to complete the first response which can be added to Compass.

A list of people who have completed the Virtual First Response can be found here.

If you have done an external course, please refer to the e-learning below for more details on now to convert these to first response

If you have any queries, please email Mike Baxter via [email protected]
