The Parent Company
The Parent Company is a well established and leading provider of first aid training for parents and carers. They have a friendly team of experienced Paediatric NHS nurses who will come to your home during the day, evening or weekend and teach groups of up to 6 people. They also run 12 hour paediatric courses to comply with guidelines set by OFSTED.As with most first aid classes, they teach the practical skills needed to respond to medical accidents and emergencies. However they also aim to build parents and carers belief in their own abilities, and empower them to respond confidently in an emergency.
Classes cover what do if a baby or child is choking, not breathing or unconscious, first responder actions for common accidents and injuries, recognizing high risk signs of illness and assessing the injured or ill child.Easy-to-read wall charts are provided to support the classes and a certificate of attendance will be issued after the class.
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.
