Frequently Asked Questions
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.
