Successful completion of this course certifies an individual as a first-aider.
This course includes responding to an emergency, CPR skills, first aid and safety. You will be given an opportunity to practice using manikins, scenarios and guidance from a trained instructor, then you will complete a performance examination.
This course listing is for 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.
Certification is valid for two years.
Prerequisite: The ability to kneel and participate in physical activity. Prior to attending the in-person session, online content must be completed.
What to Bring: Paper, pen, food and drink, your enthusiasm and Training Record Card. This training is also offered in a full classroom course. 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. This full course is required every four years.
About Blended Learning Courses: Blended learning combines the convenience of online learning with a shortened practical skills session to meet both knowledge and skill objectives for learners and provides flexibility and self-control for the learner. Blended learning is an easy to use, self directed, active experience that appeals to many volunteers. Advanced registration is required to provide ample time to complete the online portion prior to the class. Students and instructors can automatically receive email notification regarding enrollment, follow-up, and completion associated with the training program.
After registering, you will receive a link via email at least 10 days prior to the class with instructions on how to complete the online portion of the class. Students must successfully complete both the online and skills portions of Blended Training. Completion of the online portion alone will not result in a certification. The online portion must be completed prior to attending class. Failure to do so will remove the student from class and they will have to register and pay again for another class.
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.
