In an average year, half of all infants under 12 months and a quarter of older children will attend hospital. Most bumps and falls are not serious but it is important that you know what to do if you find yourself in an emergency situation. This course is perfect for parents, expectant parents, grandparents, babysitters, foster parents and carers of babies and young children*. It will teach you simple lifesaving techniques and give you opportunities to practise skills as you learn so that you will feel more confident should you need to use them.
*If you care for a child professionally then our Paediatric First Aid course meets all workplace requirements.
