First Aid Training by the Irish Red Cross 

Medical emergencies like a heart attack or choking happen all the time and we are never sure when they will occur. The Irish Red Cross trains individuals or groups in the skills necessary to recognise
and provide first aid training for injuries and sudden illness until medical personnel arrive and take over.

The Irish Red Cross provides paediatric first aid training to childcare workers around Ireland. Whether you are a teacher, childcare worker or home carer, we ensure you have all the necessary skills and knowledge. From first aid response to manual handling, the Irish Red Cross ensures your staff are trained to the highest standard, and we keep your company up to date with the latest legal requirements for first aid at work.

Every year, thousands of students, colleges and training centres around Ireland learn life-saving first aid training with the Irish Red Cross. Our practical, hands-on and emergency first aid courses
are designed specifically for training centres or schools, empowering everyone with the confidence and ability to respond to an emergency.

Irish Red Cross training is available nationwide.

Many thanks to the Irish Red Cross team.”

“I found the training provided by the Irish Red Cross to be practical, informative and enjoyable. As we had five people they came to our workplace at times that were convenient to us which was great.”

“The Irish Red Cross attend our Baby & Me events each month across our stores nationwide. These events are for expectant parents where we aim to provide them with information on what products they need and more importantly, provide them with expert advice. The Irish Red Cross have been an excellent addition to our Baby & Me events, discussing important topics such as CPR, choking and treatment of burns. Our customers really enjoy this part of the event and find it extremely useful.”
