Free First Aid for babies & children course

The Brighton and Hove City Council Community Learning team are delighted to be able to offer a free first aid for babies and children course for your community group. The three hour course is an opportunity for you to feel more confident about what to do in an emergency situation with children. The course is offered by a qualified Red Cross approved tutor, and a resource booklet is also available at the end of the course to support the learning.

The course covers:

  • Managing burns and scalds
  • How to deal with choking
  • The recovery position
  • Basic life support for children and babies

We offer the course on a Thursday and the session runs for three hours. Feedback from people completing the course has highlighted that this is a vital course for anyone who wants to increase their confidence in emergency situations.
