The Victorian Scout First Aid Service offers first aid courses from the State Activity Centre in Mt Waverley and the Braybrook Scout Centre. Other locations can be arranged by contacting the First Aid team.
To be appointed to a Activity Leader role, you need to have a current level two first aid course. This can be done through the Victorian Scout First Aid Service, or with another RTO, although you will need to send a certified copy of your certificate to the Training Office at the Victorian Scout Centre.
There are a number of scheduled first aid courses, Some of the supplementary courses that can be arranged include Asthma Management, Anaphylactic Shock Management, Epilepsy Management and Wound Management.

Mental Health First Aid
In recognition of the increasing incidence of youth suicide and other youth mental health issues, Scouts Victoria, together with the State Government and Chisholm Institute are currently fully funding adult members of Scouts Victoria to undergo nationally recognised training in Youth Mental Health First Aid.
These are held over two days (normally over two different weekends) and include lunch and are delivered by Mental Health First Aid Australia.
The level of training is broadly equivalent to physical first aid courses, and while focused on youth, the techniques can be used with all adults. The State Association strongly recommends the course for all Leaders, Adult Helpers and Rovers, and covers the workshop fee.
More detailed information is available on their website: www.mhfa.com.au/cms/youth-course-information

How do I apply?
Both courses can be registered for by sending a completed TR1 (Adult Training Application) Form to the Training Office at the Victorian Scout Centre,
or by using the our online applications system.
