These courses have been set up in conjunction with the St. John’s Ambulance Association to provide adults in Scouting with the required First Response qualifications.

Remember – All Leaders have to hold an in date First Response Certificate which has to be renewed every 3 years.

Please note that these First Response courses are open to Leaders that possess a warrant, or that are in the process of getting one, and registered Young Leaders.

For New Leaders: If you have a First Response or First Aid certificate that is in is date (i.e. less than 3 years old) please e-mail Norman Longden at a copy and he will get it on your records. To book a place on one of the above courses, please contact Sue Bigg at Limited places are available on each course. There is no charge for the course. Casual clothing, uniform not required. You will need to bring a packed lunch (drinks are available) and a pad & pen.

If for some reason you have booked a place and you cannot make it or want to reschedule, PLEASE, PLEASE let Sue know so the place can then be offered to someone else. There have been quite a few no shows in the past and this is not fair on leaders wanting to go on courses or to the St John's leaders, who are volunteers also.
