FIRST AID COURSES

Infants are not able to control their own sleeping environment – they are reliant on adults to help keep them safe.

We are excited to collaborate with Emergcare to deliver an innovative program that provides parents and carers with essential skills and knowledge around injury prevention, paediatric first aid training. One of the programs also includes a component from the Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE) with evidence-based perinatal mental health education and resources.
