Family First Aid
3 hours

This 3 hour Family First Aid course covers the essential lifesaving skills that you might need around the home. It includes time for tailored/bespoke content that can be specific to you.

Who is our Family First Aid course aimed at?

This course is great for anybody but is particularly useful for families, babysitters, grandparents and other relatives. With both parents often having to work or the increase in single parent families family member are drafted in as child minders. Would you know what to do in an emergency?

This course is not suitable for nannies or other professionals nor anyone that needs Ofsted compliant courses. If you are looking after children in some professional capacity, look at our Paediatric 6 and 12-hour courses.

  • military (medics)
  • outdoor professionals (Mountain leaders)
  • Community Responders
  • Experienced First Aiders

We aim to match instructors to your specific training requirements. They are aware of the specific needs of various outdoor environments, fully understanding the problems and judgements that have to be made when dealing with incidents in stressful, dangerous and remote situations.

Training

Our training is very practical and hands on. We do not rely upon the usual ‘death by PowerPoint’, instead we use progressive incident scenario based training methods. Our courses teach techniques proven to work in real life incidents and not just in a classroom. Our training builds confidence and develops first aid skills into complete incident management.
