1st ACT provide you with the knowledge and expertise to handle any emergency situation. This is because our trainers are not only fully qualified with over 30 years experience but have actually worked in the Fire Brigade, Ambulance Service and NHS dealing with a wide variety of injuries and conditions over the years. After training for some of the largest companies in the UK we set up and established 1st ACT in 2007 so you can cut out the 'middle man' and still get the same wealth of experience and high level of training but at very competitive prices.

We are an Essex County Council Approved Paediatric Training Provider with experienced and qualified instructors who fully adhere to the Ofsted syllabus which follows the Early Years Foundation Stage practice guidance. If you are part of a Nursery, a Childminder, a Nanny or Au Pair or simply a very conscientious parent you will find us unbeatable for price, knowledge, experience and enjoyment. You can be sure that after training with us, you will have the skills and confidence when it matters, because we believe your '1st actions matter.'

Paediatric First Aid (12 hour) - Up to 12 people 'In-house' £540.00 - Or from just £45.00 per person at an 'Open venue'

This is the Full Paediatric First Aid Training Course that covers the Ofsted recommended syllabus (EYFS Practice Guidance). It is designed for those working with Children on a day to day basis such as a Nursery Staff & Registered Childminders. The Course enables the student to have an in-depth understanding of a wide range of possible scenarios for Children. It covers CPR (Adult, Child & Baby protocols), Recovery Position, Minor and Major Bleeds, Burns and Scalds as well as providing awareness to Croup, Asthma & Meningitis.

Paediatric Emergency First Aid (6 hour) - Up to 12 people 'In-house' £340.00 - Or from just £30.00 per person at an 'Open venue'.

This course is often referred to as the more basic of the 2 recommended for Paediatric First Aid. However it covers many of the same situations as the 12 hour course, mainly it leaves out the Adult protocols. It equips the student to be confident in BLS for Children and Infants as well as teaching how to deal with common childhood accidents such as nose bleeds and broken bones plus how to look out for problems such as Meningitis. Designed more for the Au Pair or Nanny this course is becoming very popular with conscientious parents.

Paediatric 2 Hour Intro Courses - 4 to 12 people £12.50 per person - Only available by pre-booking

These new course are not certificated but the skills learned are taught by the same experienced trainers that train our other Paediatric courses above. These are designed mainly for new or conscientious parents that want to know what to do in an emergency. Our 'A Course' is all about possible Airway issues such as CPR, Choking, Croup and Asthma and our 'B Course' is all about Bleeding, Burns and Broken Bones. These courses are a great introduction into Paediatric first aid. These are our first courses to be offered in your own home.

Course review by Sally Harrison, Director, Best Bear
I recently attended one of these classes. After two hours of instruction which included practical and hands-on experience with dollies, we were encouraged to practice again and again. By the end of the session we all felt very confident that we would be able to cope if something went wrong. We took away useful and clear notes to remind us about everything we had covered during the training session. I would definitely recommend the course to others.
