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.
This is an option made available by HQ during the pandemic, but it has now been extended until 31st August 2022.
For this option, you complete an e-learning package. Once complete you will then attend a 3 hours face to face course at County HQ.
The e-learning can be found by following the below link
If you have completed the E-Learning and require the face to face please email your certificate of completion to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once received you will be contacted with available dates for the face to face.
As a County we also have available a 6 hour session which includes both theory and practical sessions, covering all the elements required by The Scouts. Details of these courses can be found below
