NCT recognise how important it is for parents to have basic first aid skills and the confidence to use them in an emergency.
That’s why we are working with the British Red Cross to offer you the chance to learn skills that could save your child's life. The British Red Cross are one of the leading providers of first aid training in the UK, training around 325,000 people every year. We have worked together to create a bespoke NCT baby first aid course.
The content is specifically relevant to parents and carers of babies and pre-school children and covers topics that we know can be a worry for parents such as CPR, choking and burns. The courses are just two and a half hours long; perfect for learning the simple procedures that you need in an emergency but short enough to fit into your busy schedule. The course is suitable for parents with children up to the age of six and covers the following:
• Unconscious baby or child (breathing and not breathing)
• Raised temperatures
“I’d recommend a first aid course to every expectant parent or parent as one day you will be glad you knew what to do. I know I was.” Emma, course attendee Our Baby First Aid courses will remove any fears you have about delivering first aid in an emergency situation. 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.
