First Aid and First Response Courses
On taking a First Aid Course which is not FIRST RESPONSE please check that ALL the criteria for First Response are met.
The Scout Association does recognise that some professions by the nature of the job will have a first aid element; for example Nurses, Midwives, Policies Officers, Medical Practitioners, Members of HM Armed Forces, Ambulance Care –Assistants / Paramedics / Technicians, etc.
To exempt these profession from undergoing more first aid training, they are required to provide evidence of an up-to-date qualification which should meet the criteria for what is considered our minimum standard (see TSA website). With regards to ‘evidence’, this can be a certificate or an official letter confirming the necessary areas have been met.
