The NCT First Aid Course is a bespoke course that has been developed by NCT in partnership with British Red Cross.


The course lasts for 2.5 hours and the topics covered include:

The course is suitable for parents, expectant parents and carers of babies and young children and covers first aid techniques for babies (0-1yrs) and children (1-12yrs).  Please note that babies under 6 months old are able to come with you, but there are no changing facilities at the venue. We are unable to accept older babies/children and we are unable to provide crèche facilities.
