First Aid / CPR for Adults
First Aid and CPR training is required of the adult acting as the primary first-aider for the Girl Scout group activities. GSWPA only accepts certifications that provide hands-on training format and issue a certification. Training and certifications completed entirely online do not meet First Aid, CPR, and AED training requirements*. See our Events Calendar for upcoming trainings.
* Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania temporarily accepted the online-only American Red Cross Adult, Child, and Baby First Aid/CPR/AED certification from August 1, 2020-May 31, 2021. Volunteers who completed an online-only certification course through American Red Cross will be required to follow up with an in-person skills demonstration at a council-run course by December 31, 2021, in order to maintain their certification. See our COVID-19 Updates page for full details.
