The Ofsted 12 Hour Paediatric First Aid Course consists of one practical day plus a distance study module which is done in your own time at home. This means local Childminders, Nannies etc only have to attend one classroom day instead of the usual two.

The 6 Hour Paediatric First Aid Courses are suitable for local Parents, Babysitters and Au Pairs who only really need to learn about the practical elements of first aid.

The skills learnt on theses courses could quite literally save a child's life. We have already had several lives saved since our open courses started running in 2009.

We can also provide in-house training to groups (up to 12) for £395+vat, which follows the exact same format as the monthly open courses.
