First Aid

A First Aid qualification is desirable for all Leaders now and will be essential for all Leaders applying for or renewing warrants.

Moreover, anyone in Surrey must have a current First Aid qualification to support an authorisation to lead adventurous activities, ie Flying, Caving, Mountaineering (climbing, abseiling, hillwalking and mountain biking) and all Water activities.
