This course is ideally suited for all members of the family; Mum, Dad, Grandparents and Children, who want a more detailed introduction to paediatric and adult first aid. We recommend that children if attending should be over 8years of age, however we can work with younger children if required.

What will you learn?

The course has been designed to cover all of the types of illnesses and injurys you may come across in the home or whilst out with other members of your family. As well as dealing with First Aid, we will also look at the contents of First Aid Boxes in the Home.
