First Aid For Parents

October 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


                                                                                   $ 35.00

This one-of-a-kind comprehensive 2 hour course offers EASY TO UNDERSTAND instructions on how to help your newborn or child in many different first aid and emergency situations.  It focuses on parents, grandparents or anyone who wishes to further their skills in first aid and CPR as it applies to infants and children. We sincerely hope that you never have to use first aid but we want you to feel confident in your skills and ability to appropriately respond to the situation at hand.  This course follows the latest guidelines in first aid and CPR and is taught by a Red Cross first aid instructor with extensive medical background.  You will be assured in knowing that you will be doing the very best for your child!

Courses are offered at the Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre, in the Canon building at 2260 Walkley Road, at the intersection of St. Laurent Boulevard as well as at Mothcraft, 475 Evered Ave, Ottawa.  Please see our calendar below to register for a class.

Private courses are available to groups of 8 or more ($39.99 per participant)! If you were hoping to take this class sooner than the next scheduled class, we would be happy to offer you a private in home session!  Contact us for details at 613-523-2519.

“My training came in handy 2 weeks after I completed this course. My son started choking, he turned blue and passed out. I am happy that I knew what to do!” Pam Pilon

Can we bring our baby?
If possible, it is best to leave the little ones at home. That being said, we understand that this is not always possible. Babies are welcome if they are in your arms or their car seat. We only ask that everyone be considerate of the other participants. In other words, you may need to step out for a minute with your little one if necessary. The classroom is not be well suited for toddlers or children.

Will participants receive a certificate at the end of the class?
This is a non-certification course. By offering it as such, we can drastically reduce the cost and time associated with completing the course. We cover the same information from the 2 day course as it relates to infants and children. This is not the type of course that one takes for work. This is a course that participants take to increase their confidence and knowledge so that they know what to do if something happened with their little ones. Our goal is to equip our students with tools and a plan. We do however offer all levels of Red Cross certification courses if that is what you are looking for.

Do you offer private courses?
Absolutely! We frequently offer private in-home courses. This is a great option if you would like to have your family involved in a training session or if you would enjoy learning in a more intimate setting with a group of friends.

Enjoy learning from the comfort of your own home. Gather your your friends and family for an informative and interactive class with a registered nurse and first aid instructor who will travel to your location. Have all of your questions answered and feel more confident in your abilities to appropriately respond to many different emergency situations.

If you have a large group, we can help arrange the rental of an appropriate facility to host your class.
