All adults in Scouting holding a Leader, Manager or Supporter appointment are also required to hold a current First Aid certificate.
While everyone should always maintain their qualification, the First Aid certificate must be valid at the issue of the Wood Badge and for appointment renewal. This should be monitored by their line manager at the point of appointment review, at least every three years.
The minimum standard for First Aid Training within The Scouts is First Response. This will fulfil the requirements for appointment renewal.
