1. Can I bring my baby to the course?

We understand that when they are young it is sometimes difficult to find alternate care and that you may need to breastfeed during the course so you can certainly bring your baby with you and you can breastfeed in the class if needed. However, if alternate care can be sourced we always recommend coming to the course baby-free as we know you will be able to engage in the class much easier and get the most of it.

2.  Do I receive a certificate for attending the course?

We can provide you with an electronic statement of attendance following the course upon your request. However, this is not a standard issue as the certificate will not be a workplace accredited certificate as there is no workplace accredited course that is specific for only infant and child related emergencies.

Please note that the standard workplace accredited certificate required by employees is HLTAID003 Provide First Aid which requires approximately 6 hours of class time and an additional 2-3 hours of pre-course online learning. We do conduct all available workplace training for private groups upon request.
