Life On The Course?

Working with children can be very rewarding and comes with great responsibility. Infants and children are constantly learning, and it is inevitable that accidents can happen. Paediatric first aid training enables you to gather the first aid skills that are necessary to help children in an emergency situation. Alongside this you will learn basic principles that can stop minor injuries turning into more major ones.

The training sets out to turn you into a confident and knowledgeable First Aider. Our courses are relaxed and personable, and we will always endeavour to help each candidate individually. Paediatric First Aid will enable you to learn the skills that could quite literally save a child’s life.

Who Should Attend?

Individuals, Businesses & Organisations that work with children are legally required to complete this 12 hour course to meet Government standards. The skill set is so valuable that any parent, Grandparent or guardian would also benefit hugely. Fingers crossed you would never have to use what you have learnt, but if an emergency did occur you could implement your new found skills with confidence.
