To earn the Venturing Ranger award, a young man or woman must complete eight core requirements and four electives.
The first aid core requirement is fairly brief and straightforward. (See below.) The Venturer must complete a wilderness first aid course. The Red Cross course is mentioned by name, but the Venturer may do an equivalent course also. The choice of an equivalent course would need to be approved by the Crew Advisor.
Venturing Ranger Award Core Requirement – First Aid
Complete a standard first aid course or the American Red Cross Wilderness First Aid Basics or equivalent course.
