FIRST AID FOR BABY AND CHILD

Enrolling on a First Aid course is incredibly valuable as a parent or carer.  You should expect to cover things like resuscitation and CRP, choking, recovery positions, head injuries, burns, seizures and shock.

 Most classes are for the day or half a day and you should leave with the confidence that if a baby or child in your care has an accident you should at least be able to calmly approach the situation with lifesaving knowledge and deliver the First Aid required.

In addition to the great companies listed below, you may also find a First Aid course running at your local Children's Centre or NCT Group.
