First Aid Courses

General Tips

You used to be able to find First Aid Courses (free through the NHS) through your health visitor, but due to funding cuts I am not sure if they still run. Check with your health visitor.

The first ever first aid course I went to, I brought my daughter along to. I would recommend you NOT to bring your child. As we weren’t allowed to bring the buggies into the room, most of the time was spent taking care of my daughter who was barely two months old, and I took pretty much nothing in. When we were practicing on the training dolls, most of the children were on the floor and within seconds a cacophony of wailing started. The majority of mothers there (including myself) were pretty stressed. Even if we had been allowed to bring buggies, I would recommend doing it on your own. Please remember, that your partner/husband can also request to go. My husband did.

I used to host first aid courses with the London Ambulance Service until they stopped offering them.

Below are details of first aid courses provided by private companies.
