First Aid for Parents



An introductory first aid course for parents

Choking is one of the leading causes of death among infants. A worryingly high percentage of parents and carers wouldn’t know what to do if a child in their care started choking…would you?

Our ‘First Aid for Parents’ course will provide you with the following:

  • The skills you need to recognise and manage common emergencies in children
  • Peace of mind that you will be fully prepared in an emergency
  • Relaxed, practical training in a comfortable environment
  • A chance to discuss your experiences with other parents and an experienced instructor

Course content includes:

  • Preventing emergencies in and around the home
  • Recognising and managing choking
  • Managing a burn
  • Child and baby CPR
  • Signs and symptoms of asthma
  • Signs and symptoms of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis)
  • Signs and symptoms of meningitis
Discussions and questions about your own fears and experiences are always encouraged during the course.
