This course is approved by the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) and can be delivered over 1 day, or 2 shorter sessions – either daytime or evening to suit.

The course is a mixture of practical and theory. It is conducted in a friendly, non-intimidating and fun manner. All the trainers are highly qualified and experienced. Many are health care professionals with specialist knowledge of childhood emergencies.
There is no formal assessment at the end of the course, however the students are continually assessed throughout the day. The course price includes a training pack containing stationery, a text book and a resuscitation face shield. A certificate of competence is awarded to all students who successfully complete the course.
All candidates will receive a link via email to download their certificate within their course price. If you are the organiser, you will also receive the same link to download your employee’s certificate.To minimise our price increases this year we are introducing a fee of £3.00 per person if you would also like to receive a hard copy through the post.
