First Aid

First Aid is a vital skill for Leaders in Scouting to be qualified in. All activities conducted must do so with a nominated first aid qualified Leader present at all times.

Scouts SA accepts all Provide First Aid certificate qualifications issued by recognised First Aid Course providers. These can be submitted to training@sahq.scouts.com.au for adding to your membership record.

Scouts SA run a number of first aid courses a year, however Groups are also able to organise their own.
