2) First Aid Training 

The Training Team has had several enquiries about First Aid Training.    There are no plans at this time for Area to sponsor a First Aid training in 2022.    Guiders should attend any First Aid training available in the community even though they are more expensive than a Guiding sponsored training. 


Remember to check your District Guidelines about financial support for First Aid Training.    Depending on your District Guidelines,   Districts may pay from 1/3 or up to 1/2 of the cost,  Units may cover a portion, leaving the Guider to cover the remainder of the cost.  No Guider should have to pay the full cost of First Aid Training.

If you have any questions about training please contact the Area Training Adviser at the training email

Something else to consider for this year

TOD- Training on Demand for Guiders

Training is test driving a new idea (minimum of 6 participants)  
What do you want to learn? How can we help you?  
This is a perfect opportunity to add a training component to your District meeting! Or join with a neighbouring District for an event.


Training will keep an additional record of hours of training per District and the trainers will offer to be your staff for your District Guider year end closing if you have the best hour per Guider ratio. As there is no budget for this, we will cook and clean but the District will need to provide the ingredients. Negotiable within reason.
