Parents Training Courses

Every parent worries about the health and safety of their child. At Centaur we offer three parents courses which aim to equip you with the knowledge needed to keep your children safe by taking preventative measures against accidents and knowing what to do in an emergency. Our courses cover first aid, fire safety and accident prevention for in and around the home leaving you with the knowledge of how to fully care for your child in an emergency situation and prevent them coming to any harm.

Our most popular course that we run here at Centaur or as a course to be held at your location is the Parents First Aid Awareness All Levels course. This course covers essential first aid procedure for young children including CPR and the recovery position. It also covers topics such as choking, head injury and burns, showing you how to respond to both minor and life-threatening injuries. Anyone responsible for looking after young children can come on the course including siblings, grandparents and carers, as the course offers you the chance to practice skills and gain knowledge of how to save a child’s life. At the end of the session you will have the opportunity to ask our trainers any specific questions you may have that relate to your child, including topics such as asthma, anaphylaxis and epilepsy. Many parents talk about having a sense of power and confidence after completing the course, and some have contacted us explaining how they have used the skills learned on their own child, thankful that they had the knowledge ready when an emergency situation arose. Others were grateful to have the knowledge in unexpected situations when someone else’s child was in peril and could provide the assistance needed. The course is only £25 and really could help you save a child’s life!


Our Parents Fire Awareness and Prevention course is designed for groups of parents or cares to gain a better understanding of fire safety within the home. Many fire related incidents occur in the home and most people are not aware of the risks. Taking certain steps to prevent a fire, having an escape plan for if a fire occurs and knowing how to act in an emergency can be the difference between life and death. Fire spreads exceptionally quickly and can destroy a room in minutes. With trainers who are all current or ex fire service personnel you know you are getting the very best advice from people who have witnessed fire devastation first hand. The 3 hour course costs only £30 and is eye opening to the amount of potential fire risks and dangers within the home that you probably aren’t aware of.

Unfortunately many accidents occur in the home on a daily basis that could have been prevented. Hot irons left on the side, unattended food cooking, dangerous materials within a child’s reach, the list is endless. Hopefully most of this is common sense but what about the things you haven’t thought of? The Parents Accident Prevention course covers common accidents indoors and out, identifying dangers in and around the home, child road safety and more. It is especially useful for new parents but can be eye opening for even the most experienced parent or guardian. Costing only £30 for 3 hours it is money well spent keeping your child safe!
