Understanding First Aid Training

Module 10 needs to be completed for any active leadership roles on Compass and in addition, you need to ensure your mandatory training is kept up to date. Initial First Aid Training for module 10 must be in the form of a 6-hour first aid course, however, when renewing a 2-hour refresher is acceptable for a further 3 years and again 3 years later but after that time a 6-hour course must be undertaken.

Any EFAW, EFAW (Sports), EFAW (Forest Skills), EFAW (Outdoors), FAW or EPFA or PFA qualification is acceptable for Module 10 and/or mandatory learning. However, whilst a PFA qualification covers the scout association’s required course material of ‘Meningitis and Hyperthermia/Hypothermia’, a FAW qualification only covers the later and not Meningitis and an EFAW or EPFA course does not include either subject.

Therefore if your qualification is anything other than a PFA then you will need to prove course contents of any blended learning course you have undertaken or undertake additional Meningitis and Hyperthermia/Hypothermia training to allow validation of your qualification. Any individual employed in a medical field will need a certificate or letter of assurance in respect of competency from a recognised medical organisation such as a hospital or trust.
