First Response Certificate

The Scout Association and Girlguiding require all appointment holders to have a current first aid certificate. This course is the minimum standard required.

With a lifetime of involvement in Scouting and holding current appointments, we know the kinds of activities that leaders organise and supervise. More importantly, we know what you're likely to have to deal with if an accident occurs.

Scouting recognises that more adventurous activities are likely to require access to a first aider trained to a higher standard than first response. Our modular outdoor first aid course, based around the two-day (16 hr) REC outdoor first aid certificate, allows you to add the content required to achieve a regulated level 3 emergency first aid at work, forestry "+F" and/or Royal Yachting Association first aid certificate to what is often regarded as the industry-standard first aid course for outdoor instructors. First response certification can also be added to the modular course.

This First Response course is only open to those who are leaders or helpers with a recognised Scout or Guide group, or are members of a Student Scout & Guide Association affiliated club. Leaders and helpers in the Anglesey District should contact us before booking because the cost of your training may well be covered by district funds. Members of Bangor University Guides and Scouts should also contact us before booking. The trainer is an active Scouter and provides his time voluntarily. The course fee includes the participant's resource, certification, refreshments and a contribution towards consumables. Any excess of income over expenditure from these courses will be donated to 1st Beaumaris Sea Scout Group.
