Q: I’m only looking for part-time work is it really necessary to do first aid?

A: Yes. Parents want the best for their children with the safety of their child or children being their number one concern. Choking in babies and young children comes top of the list of things parents are most concerned about.

Research suggests that one in three people would not know what to do if a child was choking. For this reason the majority of parents who require the services of a Nanny or Babysitter require a first aid course to have been completed.

Q: How long is the course?

A: It’s a one day course followed by a multi-choice assessment which is done in your own time.

The multi-choice assessment should be completed within 6 weeks, however only around 4-6 hours is needed for this section. A First Aid booklet will be provided for reference.

A: By completing a first Aid course, you will gain the knowledge and skills to help prevent these accidents from occurring, giving peace of mind to the parents whose children you will be caring for.

Q: Will this course make it easier for me to find work in childcare?
