Paediatric 2 Hour Introduction into First Aid

4 to 12 people £15.00 per person

 

These courses have been offered since April 2012. They are not certificated by an awarding body but the skills learned are taught by the same experienced trainers that train our other Paediatric courses below. These are designed mainly for new or conscientious parents that want to know what to do in an emergency. Our ‘A Course’ is all about possible Airway issues such as CPR, Choking, Croup and Asthma and our ‘B Course’ is all about Bleeding, Burns and Broken Bones. These courses are a great introduction into paediatric first aid and are our first courses to be offered in your own home. An attendance certificate from 1st ACT can be provided.
