Frequently Asked Questions

What do you cover in your courses?

Our courses cover the 10 most common household emergency situations that our EMTs, Paramedics and Firefighters see that involve children. Example: Choking, burns, drowning, factures, bleeding, and poisoning. All the things parents worry about!

Are your courses accredited?

We have found most parents don’t have the time required to complete an accredited first aid course, let alone the pre work and follow-up evaluation. That’s why we developed a concise 3-hour workshop covering all the essential skills parents need to avoid a tragedy in the home.

Our courses are delivered exclusively by EMTs, Paramedics and Firefighters that are able to transfer their firsthand knowledge and expertise. While we take our content very seriously, we also ensure it is delivered in a practical and engaging manner in a relaxed environment.

Is there an exam? Do I need to take notes?

No, there is no exam in our 3-hour session and no need to take notes. The course is designed to give you simple, practical and current skills that you can use in an emergency. For this reason we don't teach the course in a way you need to 'study'. We also provide a poster to summarize everything we cover and to act as a quick reference guide.

Can I bring my baby?

Yes, babies under 12 months are more than welcome. Children over 12 months are discouraged... I don't know a toddler who will sit still for 3 hours!

How much is the course?

Just $85 per person (including all instruction and a quick reference poster that summarizes everything we cover).

What child age group is your course applicable?

Our courses are focused at parents and caregivers of children 0-16 yrs. However, the first aid techniques we cover are relevant to all ages. Even adults!

Who else in my family should attend?

Parents, grandparents, siblings, babysitters, nannies, aunts, uncles, neighbors and friends, anyone who spends any time with your child or any other children.

What's the difference between your courses and other first aid courses?

Trained and experienced EMTs, Paramedics and Firefighters - who are absolute experts in emergency care, present all our workshops! They have experience treating parents and children on an ongoing basis, for all the emergencies we cover, including choking, drowning, burns, seizures, fractures, bleeding, seizures and poisonings.

All our paramedics/presenters also integrate their own personal experience into the course content. This not only provides relevant and memorable examples, but is also entertaining... and sometimes-even funny!

Do you cover CPR?

Yes. The first section of the course covers CPR. We also demonstrate the difference between implementing CPR on a newborn baby vs. a toddler vs. a child vs. an adult. You will not be individually assessed, however you are very welcome to practice during the break or at the end of the workshop.

I loved your course - what can I do to help?

If you get anything out of our workshop - please recommend us to parents, family members and friends. 95% of our attendees have learned about us via word of mouth

What is the minimum/maximum number of attendees for a private session?

A minimum of 8 attendees is required to host a private session and there is no maximum number as long as everyone fits in the venue you have chosen, including your home. An experienced and qualified EMT, Paramedic and or Firefighter host all courses.

What is the price of a Private Session?

To be eligible for a private session you must at minimum cover the equivalent cost of eight attendees. Each additional attendee simply pays the same price as our public sessions - $85 per person.

Do you run Private Sessions in my area?

We hold regular courses in and around most major cities in Texas. If you live in or nearby an area we are already conducting courses (you can check HERE), then we can more than likely service you. If we don't have any upcoming course near you, please contact us anyway - we are expanding rapidly and can still help in many cases. Or view our online course option.
