This course listing is for a full classroom course. This training is also offered in a blended learning course. Blended learning delivers a portion of the training in an online format, thus reducing the amount of time spent in the classroom. The content and certification is the same for both classes.
Note: A Refresher course is available to renew certification of a previous Medic Pediatric Plus course, prior to expiration. A refresher may be completed once in between full courses. The full course is required every four years.
About GSEOK Safety Courses: An adult who has taken GSUSA approved First Aid and CPR training and volunteers to provide safety services to a troop is a first aider. First aiders are required when troops participate in activities that need council approval. The Safety-Wise chapter of Volunteer Essentials discusses first aiders and defines who qualifies as a first aider and Wilderness First Aider.
