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 which starts at 9:30am and finishes between 4:30 and 5:30pm to make sure that all the areas of the course are covered.
