First Aid for Parents

Who is it for?

Our First Aid for Parents course is perfect for parents, expectant parents, grandparents, babysitters, foster parents and carers of babies and young children.

 
If you care for a child professionally please check our website for fully accredited first aid courses.
 
Suitable for people 16 years and over, this course is designed to teach you a range of first aid skills to cope with emergency situations for babies and children from birth to puberty.
 
Why should I attend?
 
In a typical year up to half of infants under 12 months and a quarter of older children will attend hospital. Bumps and falls are inevitable and thankfully most aren’t serious, but it is important that you know what to do if you find yourself in a first aid emergency.
 
This course will teach you simple life-saving techniques and give you the opportunity to practice the skills as you learn, so you will feel more confident should you need to use them in real life.

  • Dealing with an Emergency
