I did Paediatric first aid course today and also did the top up online course. The online course was easy to navigate and could do it at my own pace which worked around my working shifts.Then I did the face to face course today. Ian Bennington was friendly down to earth and professional, he put us at ease straight away. He explained everything clearly and made sure we understood what to do.Highly recommended

Throughout the years I have taken various first aid courses, however as a first time mum I decided to take the paediatric first aid course so I could learn first aid techniques specifically for babies and children. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the course but it far exceeded any expectations I had. The course was well organized and the instructor Dr Emma was brilliant. This is the first time I’ve had a medical professional teach me a first aid course and I can honestly said it made such a difference in how the course was taught. Dr Emma broke the first aid course down into simple and easy techniques to remember and I felt a lot more prepared and confident by the end of the class. Highly recommend this class!
