Our Paediatric First Aid Courses

Our course is taught over 12 hours incorporating a range of hands-on, practical and interactive activities making it a very engaging experience for everyone.  Our trainers offer demonstrations, theory and on-going assessments to ensure all learners feel confident and competent. Our course will equip you with the skills to be able to recognise and respond to a first aid emergency safely and efficiently.
