Our unique courses

Our carefully crafted courses cover a wide range of areas from helping you, your partner and even your domestic helper build your confidence with courses ranging from child care and emergency response, to antenatal classes as well as Paediatric First Aid & CPR courses.

 

We have regular courses running, but if the dates don't work for you get in touch and we can tailor a solution for you.

As a precautionary measure we will require participants of in-person classes to complete a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) on the morning of the day of the course.
