Paediatric First Aid

Emergency Paediatric First Aid (6 hours) or full Paediatric First Aid (12 hours), designed to meet the requriements of the Statutory Framework for Early Years Foundation Stage 2014.

AED Training

Automated External Defibrillators (AED's) can be life saving in the event of a cardiac arrest - the sooner they are used, the better the chance of survival. But many people are hesitant to use them, and with their numbers increasing in public places (including schools), this 2-3 hour course aims to give learners the confidence to use them when needed.

Asthma and Anaphylaxis awareness

1 hour Emergency awareness sessions designed to supplement existing first aid training, as a refresher, or to provide awareness to anyone living with or supporting someone with asthma or severe allergies.

Baby and Child first aid awareness sessions

Normally held in conjunction with Tiaki pregnancy and family centre, these 2 hour sessions provide parents, grandparents and carers with a breif introduction to first aid skills to help in case of an emergency. To see details of the next session, click here.
