First aid for baby and child is designed to teach you a range of first aid skills to cope with emergency situations for babies and children 0-5 years. We include lots of practical exercises because we want to give you confidence in dealing with a real life emergency. Delegates must be physically able to carry out the procedures detailed in the training outline.


This is a 5 hour, one day session.

We also offer a first aid for babies and children evening course option, split over two consecutive evenings (2.5 hours per evening).


There are no creche facilities; therefore we are unable to accommodate children.
