Accepted first aid qualifications

by The County Office

If you have already undertaken first aid training, either in the workplace or personally, you may already meet Girlguiding’s current requirements.

All elements of the Girlguiding 1st response syllabus must have been covered, paying particular attention to those that must be demonstrated both in practice, as well as in theory. You can find out more about the requirements via the button below.

Check your course suitability

To be a recognised first aider in Girlguiding you must also complete the 1st response e-learning module via the Girlguiding Learning Platform.

If you want to apply for your qualification to be accepted within your Girlguiding role you must completed the short e-learning module first.

Then email [email protected] providing:

  • A copy of your external first aid certificate AND
  • A copy of the full course syllabus.

The county administrators will forward these on to the Anglia region verifier who will check the evidence against the Girlguiding criteria, and make a decision, requesting further information if necessary.

Please allow adequate time for this process.

If your training fulfils the criteria, the region verifier will advise the county administrators who will then add the qualification to your GO record accordingly.
