NCT has teamed up with the British Red Cross to offer you the chance to learn vital first aid skills that could one day save your child's life. The British Red Cross are the leading providers of first aid training in the UK and their expert trainers will give you plenty of practise in life saving techniques and lots of opportunity to ask questions. 

NCT Baby and Child First Aid courses have been uniquely designed with you in mind. The content is specifically relevant to parents and carers of babies and pre-school children and covers Loss of Consciousness and CPR, Choking, Bleeding, Burns, High Temperatures and Meningitis.

The courses are just over two hours long; perfect for learning the simple procedures that you need in an emergency but short enough to fit into your busy schedule.

For just £25* per person or £45* per couple you can book your place!

The courses will be held at Pilgrims School, Brickhill Drive, Bedford, MK41 7QZ.

Babies in arms (under 6 months) are welcome.

* Concessionary rates are available for those on lower income and multiple bookings.
