What good is your baby monitor and first aid kits, if you don't know how to do proper first aid in an emergency? That's why we organize private First Aid Classes that covers more baby and child-related emergencies.
The class is taught by a doctor. It is designed for parents and caregivers. All basic first aid for adults are covered, plus a special focus on common emergencies for infants and children. Ideally, all members of the household must take a First Aid class. At the very least, the parents and the primary caregiver of the child (ie grandparents or nanny) must learn these important knowledge. Better be safe than sorry.
The class can be in English, Chinese, or Bilingual. It lasts 3-4 hours, depending on the group.
You can organize your own private group. Or sign up as an individual and we'll form a group with other participants. For queries or suggestions, wechat us at +86136 2179 6710 or email cbongga (at) yahoo (dot) com

Frequently Asked Questions
Where and When is it held?
We believe learning first aid is important, yet it's tough to find good classes in Shanghai. That's why we organize weekend classes during our free time. The group provides the location, anywhere in Shanghai. We can discuss the schedule based on both our availability.
How much is a class?
CNY380 per head, for a group of 10 or more participants. ( CNY700 for couples)
CNY 3800 per group of 10 or less divided amongst participants.
Children below 12 years old free, when accompanied by parent participants. (Subject to the host's approval)
How long is the class?
It is around 3 to 4 hours, depending on the group's size, language preference, and well, on how many questions your group asks (the doctor tries to answer as much as he can). It can be in English, Chinese, or Bilingual. Keep your whole afternoon free, you wouldn't want to rush through these important knowledge.
What location is appropriate?
Usually a living room is enough, as long as there's a TV or projector. Some participants volunteer to host, and the savings is passed on to the group. Some groups prefer to rent a clubhouse or community center.
Can we bring babies or kids?
This depends on the group and on the host's house rules. The teacher does not mind, as long as the class is not being disrupted.
Do you give special classes to children, offices, or groups with specific needs ?
Contact us with your requirements.
Do you give certificates?
We do private classes for individuals and parents who want to learn first aid for personal knowledge. We don't give First Aid Certifications. (There's an exam you need to take to get a proper certification in China. People who take this are usually paramedics & lifeguards.)
