PAEDIATRIC FIRST AID

Course Dates: View the dates for this course type »
Trainers: View the trainers offering this course type »

What our customers think of this course type:

this course was better than any 1st aid course i have ever attended. I think that because the tutor is actively practisng his information was relevant and up to date. The things I was taught felt like they were much more common sense based. Previous courses I have attended have left me thinking that there was no way I would attempt to give 1st aid through worrying that i may get the breaths wrong or tie a bandage wrongly or forget to check pockets!! This course left me feeling that I would happily 'give it a go'. The tutor was focused, accommodating and welcoming. The venue was easy to get to and the refreshments were delicious. The video clips helped to make real life situations more relevant. The 1st aid book we were given is very useful too. Thank you very much. Lydia
