NCT Baby First Aid courses are facilitated by British Red Cross trainers and provide first aid training for parents of babies under one, and older children up to 12 years old. These interactive, confidence-building courses are held locally, and will provide plenty of opportunity to practise techniques and ask questions.
The courses are suitable for parents, expectant parents and carers of babies and young children. Babies in arms are welcome to attend with adults - up to the age of 6 months.
During the two and a half hour course you will learn techniques for:
* Unresponsive baby and child (breathing or not breathing)
* Choking baby and child
* Raised temperatures
Carl attended the Baby First Aid class at one of our branches. He said: "Being a nervous new parent who has never done a Baby First Aid course before, this made me feel more confident, calmer and more assertive. I would recommend this course as you learn more than I expected. I will be asking my partner to book on the course!"
This course is organised by volunteers in NCT branches, please allow extra time for a reply due to volunteer capacity.
THERE IS ALSO AN AFTERNOON SESSION ON THE SAME DAY
Please note: This training takes place at the Red Cross Training Centre in Hove. This centre is currently only used for adult education so whilst you are more than welcome to bring non-mobile babies with you to the sessions please be aware there are no dedicated baby change at the centre. So we strongly recommend you change your baby before attending and bring a portable change mat / equipment with you that can be used on the floor if need be.
