What This Course Covers

This course is ideal for those expecting a baby, who already have a newborn or look after a young baby such as close friends and family. If your children are older than this then you should consider a full day course.

Our Parent and Child Emergency Basics course will give you a broad understanding of techniques and methods that can be applied straight away.

Through various role play and practical scenario exercises you will become proficient in dealing with a range of conditions and environments.

From putting an infant or young child in the recovery position to performing more advanced first aid techniques such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Due to the sensitive nature of this course, we only run this course as a private group. It costs £270 + VAT to run this private course and you can have up to 12 people attend.

You are very welcome to bring your babies to this course so just get in touch should you wish to know any more information or discuss possible dates.

How We Work

At First Aid Plymouth we take every aspect of the service we provide very seriously. All of our staff are highly experienced first aid trainers as well as being fully qualified teachers. This means we can offer the very highest training standards that exceed all requirements set by the HSE. As well as standard accreditation we also offer FAA and Ofqual regulation on every single one of our courses. This ensures you are guaranteed the very latest in first aid techniques, first aid training material and first aid teaching practices.

HSE REQUIREMENTS

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the government body that sets the overarching rules on first aid qualifications in the UK. Over the last 10 years things have changed dramatically in the first aid sector in regards to how first aid providers deliver first aid courses. Advised by institutes such as the General Medical Council and the Resuscitation Council techniques are constantly evolving and improving. We stay at the head of the game by constantly reviewing our practices and in house training whilst also drawing on our own extensive experience working in a broad range of extreme environments. Our staff have working experience in professions ranging from combat paramedics to mountain guides.

HSE Training Requirements
LEGAL REQUIREMENTS

As employers it is now commonplace to have first aid trained staff. This is to guarantee a safe working environment for both your staff and your clients.
Depending on your business you can have very different first aid requirements so we have various first aid courses to choose from.
As of 2013 the HSE made changes that primarily put an onus on the individual or employer to establish the most relevant first aid qualification for your particular environment and needs.
To establish the most relevant route for you or your business you should start with a risk assessment. This should highlight the most obvious areas of danger and from there the right course should be clear.
If you are unsure please get in touch and we will help point you in the right direction however we cannot provide legal advice and it will be up to you to make the final decision on which course you need.

OUR PROMISE

All of our first aid courses comply with the latest guidelines from the Resuscitation Council UK and the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidance on First Aid 2016.
We are fully qualified to provide accredited and regulated first aid qualifications. Should you require Ofqual regulated certification then we process your certificate through the FAA (First Aid Awards).
We teach varied, engaging content that is tailored to be relevant to your specific requirements and group.
We will continue to push the boundaries of exciting education with the use of new and innovative technologies.
