Course Description

North Yorkshire First Response

During COVID19, you will need to complete a ‘Virtual’ first response course for face to face Scouting.

If your certificate expired on or after 01/04/2020, you can do a refresher by completing this e-learning and you will be emailed a ‘Virtual’ first response certificate. When we get to Green readiness level you will need to attend a practical validation session including Recovery, CPR, choking and bleeding - this is then recorded on Compass.

If your certificate expired before 01/04/2020 you need to complete this e-learning plus a zoom session to get your ‘Virtual’ First Response certificate. When we get to Green readiness level you will need to attend a practical validation session including Recovery, CPR, choking and bleeding - this is then recorded on Compass.

(PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME OF THE VIDEOS INCLUDE BLOOD AND OTHER INJURIES - please email me if this will be an issue for you.)

Please state what you require when you register for the course. Any queries: dcctraining@nys.org.uk
