Title: Safety: First Aid & CPR

Activity Checkpoints to determine whether or not a First Aider is
required for your activity. The leader is encouraged to engage another
volunteer for this important position. Certain health care providers
meet GSUSA requirements through their profession, and you may find
someone already in your troop/group trained or qualified to serve as
your First Aider –including physicians, registered nurses, dentists,
and emergency medical technicians. Additionally, there may be an adult
who has been trained through a GSUSA approved agency in their
community. Adults are encouraged to obtain the courses either through
GSCSNJ or another approved agency such as the American Heart
Association (AHA,) American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI,) or
American Red Cross (ARC). Some courses offered by AHA, ASHI or ARC
have separate components for First Aid and CPR, with separate
expiration time frames. Both First Aid and CPR (adult and child) are
required to be considered a Girl Scout First Aider. 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. Approval is needed
for courses taken online or from a third party not listed above.
