NCT recognises how important it is for parents to have basic first aid skills and the confidence to use them in an emergency. However rare it is for accidents to happen, it’s great to know you’re prepared to cope if you need to.
The course lasts for 2.5 hours, and the topics covered include:
- Unconscious baby and child (breathing or not breathing)
- Choking baby and child
- Raised temperature
The NCT Baby & Toddler First Aid courses are suitable for parents, expectant parents and carers of babies and young children.
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. In order to avoid disrupting the presenter and other participants, please DO NOT bring children over the age of 6 months; if you do you are likely to be asked to leave (with no fee refund).
A two and a half hour Baby and Toddler First Aid course costs £40 for a single participant and £70 for a couple.
We offer a discounted rate for:
- Under 18s
- Students (under 22 years of age), parents receiving income support, income- based job seekers allowance, council tax benefit, housing benefit, employment and support allowance or working tax credit
- Parents with a yearly household income of less than £15,000
