The Health and First Aid Scheme covers all aspects of health and first aid at a residential event, such as briefing participants, using health forms, monitoring hygiene standards, ensuring the well-being of participants and providing appropriate first aid arrangements. The training is applicable for adults (they do not need to be Guiders but must be over the age of 18) who wish to provide this support to guiders who are taking girls away on residential events.
Training is tailored to complement your current First Response/First Aid skills and to ensure you have a wider understanding of the health and hygiene issues required for taking girls away on all residential events.
The Health and First Aid certificate needs to be renewed every 3 years. This renewal covers both first aid and health & hygiene.
