The booklet that came with the course is very user friendly (just reading it now!). I love the flow chart on the back of your course flier. Kathy Langhorne
The First Aid for Babies and Toddlers courses are extremely popular and as parents ourselves, we ensure we cover all the common first aid emergencies and empower you with confidence to help when it really matters.
Our courses are extremely practical and we have ample mannequins to enable loads of hands-on experience.
If no Baby First Aid course is advertised, please book onto one of our scheduled Emergency First Aid courses and email us to let us know. We will then ensure the course is tailored to precisely meet your needs and you are given ample opportunity to focus on your chosen age group. The core course syllabus for the Emergency First Aid course is identical to that on the Baby First Aid course.
If you would like a bespoke group course or would like to have your babies with you, we would be delighted to come to your home or venue of your choice and run a group course at a time and place to suit you.
If you attend one of our scheduled courses you will be awarded with an Emergency First Aid Certificate on the day. The certificate is valid for 3 years.
