Learn to save a child's life - for FREE
Published: 13 Jun 2012 09:30
They last just 90 minutes and you can choose a slot at either 11am-12.30pm or 1-2.30pm.
A total of 50 places are available in all and will be given on a first-come, first served basis.
Training will primarily focus on lifesaving techniques for use on children up to five but some of the basic principles taught at the sessions could be applied to older children adults. Areas to be covered will include:
- Resuscitation of baby and toddler
- Coping with choking.
Duncan Cantor, communications director at Boehringer Ingelheim, which has sponsored the News's Child Lifesaver courses since they started, said: "As a company, we are committed to family health.
"This year is the 50th anniversary of the opening our UK office and what better way to celebrate our half-century than by continuing our commitment to our community by supporting increased awareness and knowledge of first aid.
"By helping parents, grandparents and carers learn the basic first aid skills they may, one day, be in a position to save someone's life.
"For me, that is a pretty good legacy for any company to have."
Sessions are taken by St John Ambulance instructors and will run at the charity's centre in Crowthorne Road North, Bracknell. There is no certificate or qualification; the idea is to give you some instruction in basic first aid.
Please could attendees note that unfortunately we are unable to provide child care facilities there.
If you want to book your free place on a Child Lifesaver course, please email email@example.com, giving your name and contact telephone number plus your preferred time slot.
