Derby and District NCT has teamed up with the British Red Cross to offer you the chance to learn vital first aid skills that could one day save your child’s life. This two and an half hour course is delivered by an expert British Red Cross trainer.  The session covers topics such as delivering CPR, choking, burns and meningitis.  Every parent has worries about facing an emergency situation involving their child. This course will address your fears giving you lots of practice in lifesaving techniques and plenty of opportunity to ask questions. 

The NCT Baby first aid courses are suitable for parents, expectant parents and carers of babies and young children (including grandparents). The course covers First Aid techniques for babies (0-1yrs) and children (1-12yrs). Babies in arms are welcome to attend with adults - up to the age of 6 months. Refreshments will be provided.

Our next NCT Baby First Aid Course is running on Saturday 26th October 2019 and you are now welcome to book with us.  Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with events
