First Aid Training needs to be completed every 3 years.
The risk assessment for all activities should include First Aid:
Is there somebody with suitable knowledge & qualifications for any accident / injury that's likely to happen?
A first aid kit and accident book are mandatory at all meetings / trips:
Do all volunteers know where it is located and your procedures?
How does training work?
First Aid training is now delivered in two parts: Learning (10A) and Practical (10B).
These can be covered as:
A single full day 10A + 10B session,
Several evening 10A sessions, followed by a final 10B session
An e-learning course for 10A, followed by a final session to validate 10A and complete 10B.
We believe that this 3rd "Blended Model" is the most convenient for the majority of adults in the County.
The Blended Model for First Aid
Complete most your Learning (10A) module online, then validate that in-person whilst doing your Practical (10B) module.
First Aid Theory (Module 10A)
We're using Hampshire Scouts' system to deliver the learning portion this module.
This course is designed to take 2.5 hours, but you can start / stop as many times as you need.
Make sure that you fill in the form at the end of the module (so that your details are sent to us!)
Please ensure you watch the videos and read the information as we monitor completion times.
Module validation is covered as part of the 10B course!
(Modules 10A & B)
We recommend trying Module 10A and the blended approach, however, if this is isn't right for you then details of any full-day courses covering the entire syllabus can be found in our Eventbrite First Aid page.
