British Red Cross first aid training

Morton Michel policyholders can benefit from a 10% discount for individuals or a 10% discount for group bookings.

The British Red Cross are recognised as standard setters in first aid training. You can choose to attend either a two-day paediatric first aid training course or one day emergency paediatric first aid training course at our Red Cross training venues or at your own premises for group training. Both courses include automated external defibrillator (AED) training; although it's rare for a child to ever need an AED, we feel it's important for people who care for children to know how to use one.

Paediatric first aid two-day training from Red Cross Training:

This course is suitable for people aged 16+ who care for babies and children in any professional setting and are required to be qualified in first aid, including: au pairs, nannies, childminders, nursery and pre-school workers, sport and leisure staff, crèche leaders, anyone responsible for the welfare of children.

Our two-day paediatric first aid courses will help you to learn first aid skills for babies and children to ensure you are able to respond to a range of illnesses and accidents that you may come across in your setting, including but not restricted to:

Helping a child who:

- is unresponsive and breathing
