Tameside branch are holding an NCT Baby First Aid course. The course will be run by the British Red Cross. It is designed 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.
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
Places for the course are limited, so that the course is well delivered. It will be £20 per person and £35 per couple. There are also a limited number of concessionary places.
The course will run at 2 times: 10:00-12:30 and 13:30-16:00
