Parent/ Carer Course Information
Learning first aid is a life skill that many of us never learn. When it comes to children it is really important that we know at least basic first aid as it could potentially save a child’s life.
We run several courses across the North West on both weekdays and weekends. We can also come to your organisation to facilitate courses for the parents/ carers you work with at nurseries, playgroups, schools and community groups.
The maximum number on all our parent/ carer courses is 12.
The parent/carer courses are ideal for all parents, new parents, expectant parents, grandparents, carers and anyone who looks after and cares for children aged 0-12 years.
All of our courses are delivered by fully qualified and insured first aid instructors.
All our courses train you in providing first aid to babies and children and require concentration and your full attention. Our parent/ carer courses are not suitable for professionals who require emergency or full paediatric first aid training. If full paediatric first aid training is something you need, please get in touch as we also offer this training.
Subjects covered on the parent/ carer course
On our parent/ carer courses we cover the following subjects:
Treatment of an unconscious casualty
Resuscitation & CPR
Courses are £25 per person. The cost includes the 2.5hour course and a full colour paediatric handbook. Or £40 for two places on the same course, this offer only includes 1 copy of the paediatric handbook, but you can buy an additional copy should you require one for an additional £5.00 on the day of the course.
Most of our chosen venues are fully accessible. However, if you have any specific access or learning requirements/concerns, please let us know in advance.
