First Aid for Parents and Child Carers


The First Aid for Parents and Child Carers training course is designed to equip parents, guardians, and individuals responsible for the care of children with the knowledge and skills to handle common medical emergencies that may arise in infants, children, and young people.

Who needs this qualification?

This type of training is particularly relevant for those who take care of children regularly, such as parents, babysitters, grandparents, teachers, and childcare professionals.

Why is this training important?

Parents and child carers are often the first responders in emergencies involving their children. Knowing first aid can help them provide immediate and appropriate care, which can significantly affect the outcome of an injury or medical incident.

Learning first aid techniques gives parents and child carers the confidence to handle emergencies effectively. This preparation can help reduce panic and stress during critical situations.
