CPR First Aid
This course is required for activities with increased risk, as identified in Safety Activity Checkpoints.
For many activities, Girl Scouts requires that at least one adult volunteer be first-aid/CPR-certified. Please take age-specific CPR training - child CPR if you’re working with younger girls and adult CPR when working with older girls/adults. The Safety Activity Checkpoints references when a first-aider needs to be present at activities.
First-aid/CPR training that is available entirely online does not satisfy Girl Scouts’ requirements. Such courses do not offer enough opportunities to practice and receive feedback on your technique.
Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada recognizes CPR and First Aid certification through the following organizations:
|American Heart Association||877-242-4277|
|American Red Cross||702-791-3311|
|Sundance Safety Training||702-280-9884|
You may contact organizations directly for class schedules and fee information. Please forward a copy of the certification card to be recorded for your Girl Scout training record. Card is valid for two years.
