Parent First Aid was set up by Peter Finnegan following his own personal family medical emergency in October 2014, when Peter's two year old son Robbie was unable to breath and started changing colour as he choked on a piece of fruit in the family home. Read Peter's story here.

This frightening experience spurred Peter to enrol himself in a suitable First Aid course but after must research, neither he nor his wife Helen could find anything suitable on offer locally or at a convenient time.  Amazed by the lack of suitable courses for families and coming from a training background, Peter made the decision to set up Parent First Aid.  

Parent First Aid was established to offer essential medical emergency instruction at local level and at times that suit busy lives.  All courses are delivered by vetted, fully qualified and experienced trainers.

Parent First Aid training covers the following topics:

  • CPR - Baby / Toddler
  • CHOKING - Dealing with a Choking Baby / Toddler
  • BURNS / SCALDS
  • BREAKS / FRACTURES
  • MENINGITIS
  • TEMPATURE CONTROL
  • POISIONS
  • Plus more critical areas discussed in class....
