A first aid company wants to teach vital “life-saving skills” to children across Tayside.
First Stop Safety Training, run by Robyn and Stuart Duffy is encouraging parents to enrol their children on the one hour course.
Currently, first aid training is not required by law in Scottish schools but the pair are seeing a rising demands from parents.
In England, a law has been passed to introduce first aid classes into schools and they will become compulsory from 2020.
The Tiny Medics class offers one hour workshops to children aged three and over, in Dundee and Edinburgh.
Younger children will be taught how to call for an ambulance in an emergency and perform CPR compressions, while older children learn full CPR, burn treatments and anaphylaxis training.
Classes, for which there is a fee, previously ran over the summer holidays but soaring demand had led the organisation to introduce further sessions in the October break.
Robyn said: “There is a lot of demand because these types of classes are not mandatory in Scotland so a lot of parents tell us that they want to educate their children just in case.
“The kids and their parents love the training. After the courses have finished we’ve had parents get in touch with us to tell us their kids have been raving about it and how useful it’s been.
“It could be potentially life-saving. Not only does it give kids the confidence but it teaches them what to do in an emergency.
“They may be put in a situation with a loved one where they may have to act and these courses allow them to be prepared and potentially save a life.
“We hope the Scottish Government notice that there is a demand for first aid training in children because we’d love to be able to take it into schools eventually.”
