Module 10: First Aid

Adults in Scouting must hold a current first aid qualification at the time of gaining their wood badge and at appointment renewal, and they are encouraged to keep their qualification up to date, renewal every 3 years.    

The minimum standard for this qualification is First Response, but higher levels of expertise are needed if the adult wishes to give first aid training or lead certain kinds of adventurous activities.

We also run extended first aid courses throughout the year which lead to a British Red Cross Practical First Aid Qualification, please look at the County Diary to see when the next course is available.

1st September - Safety Training is Mandatory

From the 1st September 2013, all volunteers undergoing appointment reviews will be required to have completed some form of Scouting specific safety training . This training could be Module 1, Module 17, Module 23 or the ongoing learning safety training module within the last five years

The online safety training has been designed using the same objectives and key messages which underpin all scouting activities from weekly meetings to camps and adventurous activities.

Although it is not mandatory for Executive members to undertake this training it does give a good underpinning to their responsibilities under the recent changes to safety responsibilities in POR.

For the ongoing learning safety module visit here.

Practical Skills

There is a practical skills training module being run for all of those who either need their module 18 or just want to brush up on their practical scouting skills. The course is being run by the County training team on May 11th 2013 at Paston HQ in Peterborough. 

The course will be based around enabling adults to gain and develop practical scouting skills that they will be able to pass on to their young people in their sections.

Training Costs

As from the 1st January 2013 all adult modular training in Cambridgeshire will be free of charge to leaders at the point of delivery. This will also include 16hr First Aid Training.  There will however be charges made to the group should the delegate not attend the course, without a valid reason, and for anybody else who is not a member of Cambridgeshire County Scouts. We will advise Learners that they should liaise with their GSL's before cancelling a course or not turning up.

Training Resources
