First Aid / CPR Training Information

Many of the great troop activities that you will do require a First Aid/CPR certified Adult to be present. Whenever you plan an activity outside of the regular meeting place, you should first check the Safety Activity Checkpoints.
Why Require First Aid / CPR certification?
First aid courses cover a wide variety of accidents from scrapes and cuts to bruises, choking, and accidental poisoning.  First aid knowledge can turn a monumental accident into a small inconvenience. Loss of breathing is another situation that can lead to a need for CPR.  All important things to consider when assuming care for other people’s children.
GSNETX Scheduled Courses
For your convenience, GSNETX periodically schedules First Aid / CPR courses at various Service Centers in the Dallas metroplex. When available, these courses are led by an American Heart Association certified instructor. Click here for a list of available times and locations in e-Biz.
GSNETX policies recognize & accept credentials from only 7 approved First Aid/CPR instruction providers.
Please take the time to carefully review the information below to make sure that you are making an informed choice when selecting a training provider so that you spend your money and time wisely. (Please note - first aid/cpr online training does not satisfy Girl Scouts’ requirements because such training does not offer enough opportunities to practice and receive feedback on your technique.)
