Welcome to our local programme to refresh your First Aid Skills
Girl Guiding Nottinghamshire offers a unique and exciting way to refresh your First Aid Skills. This is undertaken in two parts;
Part One – An online First Aid quiz related to Guiding events and activities covering the theory requirements for the new 1st Response Refresher Course:
- Heart attack and Angina
- Emergency Life Support
In addition it covers:
- Effects of heat and cold
- Burns and scalds
- Bony injury and sprains
It also covers some of the documentation required. Please click on the link to undertake the quiz: http://www.firstaid.sgihs.co.uk
When you have successfully completed the quiz you will be issued with a certificate to print off. If you feel confident with your knowledge and abilities proceed to part two. If you do not please arrange to attend a face to face refresher training or full First Response Course. (You can attempt the quiz a second time after 7 days if you do not achieve the pass mark on your first attempt)
Part Two – A short practical session to practice your skills in CPR, recovery position and bandaging. These short sessions can be undertaken at a Division, District or County level by a qualified First Aid Trainer. This is not an assessment but an opportunity to refresh your skills with an approved First Aid trainer. The First Aid Trainer will be required to sign your certificate too.
Approved First Aid Trainers are qualified trainers through recognised organisations e.g. Red Cross or St Johns Ambulance. Girlguiding Nottinghamshire has several trainers that can be approached. For further details do not hesitate to contact the First Aid Advisor
Once your Certificate has been signed please inform your Commissioner so she can update your Go! record.
