Taught by

Emma Russell; qualified first aid instructor, ex-police child protection officer, and Mum with 25 years first aid experience. Read more. 

Our NCT group did a first aid course with Emma, as our little ones were all coming up to weaning stage. The course was really useful and Emma made it easy to remember everything as she was very clear and gave demonstrations. Would thoroughly recommend!
