The Scout Association has updated its first aid training requirements. It has now been split into parts 10a (theory, which confusingly is made up of parts a,b&c below)) and 10b (practical)
10 a is currently being run remotely by Alan Dick - see below for latest courses.
10 b opportunities will commence once face to face training is sanctioned by the Scout Association.
There will be a short period of grace for those Leaders whose First Aid Training has lapsed during the pandemic. however they should complete 10a wherever possible as the priority will be to provide 10b opportunities for those that have updated 10a,

Whilst face to face training has been suspended there are still ways that you can progress your training. We realise motivation levels may be low but by completing our training obligations we will be in the beat place to move forward when conditions allow. Also if you are not meeting as often or even not at all you could use the time you would have spent at meetings to competing your training.
A number of modules are available as eLearning: 5 & 12a.
A number of modules can be completed by workbooks: 7,11,13,14,15 & 17.
The regional training team are actively looking at how we could deliver the other modules on line. (See below)
