The course is approximately two and a half hours long, covering the basics from normal vital signs, to CPR and Choking. There is a programme of open courses avaialble to both just parents or groups of 8+ at a preferred venue.

There is also the opportunity to focus on preferred areas for example, if there is another area of concern e.g. a child with asthma, allergies or requires an Epi pen time will spent on this ensuring parents are confident dealing with it should this issue arise.

Course fees are £35 per person for individuals on open courses. Group courses for 8 + persons are discounted to £20 per person. Which includes further information packs, a small first aid kit and an attendance certificate.
