NCT First Aid courses are run in partnership with the British Red Cross, and are designed to build your confidence as a parent or carer in dealing with emergency situations.

The courses are facilitated by British Red Cross trainers and provide first aid training for parents of babies under one, as well as older children up to the age of 12. These interactive, confidence-building courses are held locally, and will provide plenty of opportunity to practise 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. Babies in arms are welcome to attend with adults - up to the age of 6 months.

Children over 6 months i.e.crawlers and toddlers are at the trainer's discretion, as the course setup may not be particularly child-friendly with wires, tables and various equipment around the room.

What does the course cover?

The course covers first aid techniques for babies (0-1 years) and children (1-12 years). 

The course duration is 2 hours and, among others, includes the following topics:

  • Unconscious baby and child (breathing or not breathing)
  • Choking baby and child
  • Bleeding
  • Burns
  • Raised temperatures
  • Meningitis

Where are the courses held?
