NCT have partnered with the British Red Cross to create a bespoke First Aid course designed to build your confidence as a parent or carer in dealing with emergency situations.

All of our Baby + Child First Aid courses are delivered by highly qualified British Red Cross trainers and provide first aid training for babies under one year old, and children up to 12 years old. The British Red Cross are experts in their field and their highly skilled trainers will ease any fears you have about providing first aid by giving you plenty of opportunity to practice techniques and ask questions.

Who should come to a Baby First Aid course?

The courses are suitable for parents, expectant parents and carers of babies and young children.  Babes in arms (up to the age of 6 months) are welcome to attend with adults.

What does the course cover?

The course covers first aid techniques for babies (0-1 years) and children (1-12 years).  The course lasts for 2.5 hours and content includes:

 - Loss of consciousness and CPR
 - Choking
 - Bleeding
 - Burns
 - High Temperatures
 - Meningitis 

Our next courses will be held on 18th June 2016 at Maberley Hall, Conewood Street, N5 1DL.  There are two sessions available - 10.00-12.30pm or 2.00pm-4.30pm.  Places cost just £40, and there is a reduced rate of £70 per couple.  Concessions are available for those on low income and certain benefits.  Babies 6 months and under are welcome to come along.
