'We used Parent First Aid to provide our employees with some basic first aid for babies & toddlers. The idea to bring them on site came from an employee that attended a course when she had her first baby & found it very helpful. The training focused on baby/toddler CPR and how to deal with Choking, but the trainer was very knowledgeable & opened the floor to questions outside these 2 key areas. We had them on site for a full day & over 50 people were trained in 1 hour sessions with max 15 people per group, to allow for hands on practice. Feedback from employees was very positive & we will hopefully get them back on site to extend the training to shift personnel.

‘We recently provided our employees with a series of 1 hour sessions from Parent First Aid which included CPR, Choking, Signs and Symptoms of Meningitis and any additional topics which our employees had questions on. It was such a worthwhile hour spent and there was such a positive response from all who attended, not only on the content but also on the trainer Clodagh, who was available throughout the day for any additional questions. We will definitely consider running this again in the future.’

'The best investment I could make for my family. I discovered that what I thought would be the right way to react in an emergency could have actually had disastrous consequences. An absolute must for all parents and a really brilliant trainer. Thank you.'
M.Richardson, Donabate Parent First Aid
Parent First Aid has done many courses in Little Darlings Play Café and I can only speak highly of them. All speakers were informative and kept the audience interested. I dealt with Peter and always found him so professional and excellent to deal with. We are extremely happy with the service they provide and always received super feedback from our parents. We will definitely be using them again.

'Excellent Fire Training for childcare staff. Very enjoyable session and extremely thorough. Highly recommended.'
V.Smeaton, Manager, Malahide Marina Creche & Montessori
'I really enjoyed the class. The trainer was great, he explained everything so simply and practically that I feel so much better about being able to actually do something in case of emergency - which hopefully I will never have to with my own. I have already recommended the course to family and friends, it is a must for anyone with children!
S.Kavanagh, Castleknock Parent First Aid
'We hired Parent First Aid to come down to our Parent & Toddler Group in Kilbarrack for the morning. Our trainer Noel was highly knowledgeable and practical. There were plenty of children and babies in attendance but this didn’t bother Noel in the slightest. We couldn’t recommend Parent First Aid enough”
A.Fogarty, Child & Family Support, Northside Partnership Ltd
'I really felt that I benefited from last Thursdays course. Having the CPR mannequins there to practice on was very useful and showed exactly how to physically approach someone if the need arises in an emergency. The trainer was extremely knowledgeable and patient and took time to answer everyone's questions no matter how trivial. I would definitely feel more confident if I needed to tend to a child in an emergency situation.'
J.Cahill, Swords Parent First Aid
'Really excellent course covered an awful lot of eventualities. The trainer brought a wealth of knowledge in very relaxed environment. Great Q and A session at end too. High recommend any parent or adult for that matter to complete course you won't be disappointed!! Thanks again.'
S.Murphy, Portmarnock Parent First Aid
'I can honestly say it was a great two hours spent, I got so much information , it's so worth €35. After having a baby I really wanted to know what to do if my baby was choking etc, it's explained and showed so well, I would highly recommend this course.'
G.Keogh, Malahide Parent First Aid
'I did the first aid course on Wed 20th May and found it great. I did not realise I would have to put it to use so soon. The following Wednesday my husband was bent over in excruciating pain in his arm and top of his stomach, so I phoned for an ambulance. I was able to stay calm and follow all the paramedics instructions while waiting for the ambulance. Now this was miraculously done while our 6 children were running around wondering what was going on and his parents and sister were trying to do what they thought was best for him. I have to say without having done the course I would of probably stepped aside and thought somebody else could do a better job. However, I realise having come out the other side, I had the clearest mind and it was definitely doing the course and the instructor who gave me that confidence. Thanks very much for the opportunity of doing the course in my locality.'
E. Williamson, Kildare Parent First Aid
'€35 and 2 hours well spent. I would recommend everyone to attend this course.'
