Delivery methods

Delivery methods

Our first aid training consists of two modules: 10A - the theory part, and 10B - the practical validation. 

There are three approved delivery options available, and in all of them participants are required to attend a face-to-face practical validation session.

Face-to-face

Face-to-face first aid training is often done at local Scout meeting places. It contains both theory (10A) and practical (10B) modules, and can be delivered in one single six hour session or three separate two hour sessions.

Online

In this delivery method, the theory part of the training (10A) is done in three separate two hour online sessions, and the practical validation (10B) in a short (15-20min) face-to-face session, which covers the practical elements of the life support training. 

The online sessions are live video calls facilitated by a first aid trainer with theory explanations, knowledge checking exercises and discussions.   

Volunteers can only attend the practical validation once the theory part is completed. 

Blended Model

The Blended Model combines a 2.5 hour eLearning with a three hour online session for the theory part of the training (10A). The practical validation (10B) is a short (15-20min) face-to-face session, which covers the practical elements of the life support training.  

The eLearning is provided by Hampshire Scouts, and should be completed first. The online session is a live video call facilitated by a first aid trainer, with some more detailed knowledge checking exercises and discussions.   

Volunteers can only attend the the practical validation once the theory part (both eLearning and online session) is completed.
