A couple of months ago I had the lucky chance to join a free first aid training course through MiniK’s daycare. It was a trial run for a course that the Australian Training Solutions wanted to do for parents.
I was very glad to have finished that course. It was something I would have taken while I was still pregnant to prepare myself. It’s such an informative and interactive session that covers such a broad range — from CPR, to burns, to choking, seizures, bites, stings, poisoning, fractures, head and spinal injuries and more.
I know it’s a scary thought but I think it’s always better to be informed and prepared about these things.
Parents can attend a public course in ATS’s city rooms every fortnight, or you guys can also organise yourselves in groups of between 6-15 and they can conduct the course privately in your venue on an agreed date.
It’s $95 per person for the training session. Visit their website for more information.
