Betty – Baby Safe Training
Baby Safe Training specialises in paediatric first aid courses in and around North London. Certificated and bespoke courses are available as well as a wide range of other types of first aid training courses.
Hello, my name is Betty Gat and I am the founder and principal trainer at Baby Safe Training. I am also a mum of 3 who is very familiar with the daily mischief and accidents kids can get themselves into so I am firm believer that everyone should have the confidence to deal with both minor and major accidents.
I’ve always had a keen interest in medicine and how the body works. This sparked my interest in First Aid and I’ve been passionate about this topic ever since giving birth to my first child in 2006. Since then I have made it my mission to make learning this subject accessible, fun and easy.
I am an accredited First Aid instructor and assessor, having qualified with Aid Training. I also hold a Level 3 City & Guilds Diploma in Education & Training. My qualifications allow me to offer a range of First Aid courses including, Emergency First Aid at Work, AED Training, Paediatrics and Requalification courses.
My experience in teaching this topic spans over the years and in that time I have had the privilege of teaching people from all backgrounds, from parents, grandparents, nannies, au pairs, childminders and school staff to doctors, paramedics and even the odd celebrity! It is always lovely to hear positive feedback from clients who used their new found knowledge and managed to help in an emergency.
I also take pride in teaching children about first aid on my junior courses, and love to see the confidence they leave with, as well as the skills to help. I run training sessions for businesses who provide antenatal and postnatal classes as well as schools and childminders.
Baby Safe Training offers private home courses, open courses in North London, certificated courses and bespoke courses. Please do get in touch with any queries or requests. I can travel to areas outside of North London depending on distance so please don’t hesitate to ask!

Having choked until I turned blue myself as a child and knowing the lasting effects, it was always important to me to know what to do when my kids were born. I found Betty both a pleasure to deal with and a great teacher. She really put me at ease and taught me things that I pray I never need but now have the tools in case I ever need them. Thank you so much!
I must tell you something scary...a few hours after I got home from the course, my 2 year old daughter spilt a hot tea all over her legs. It was all so fresh in my mind that I totally knew what to do straight away! She's covered in bandages at the moment but thank G-d she's ok! They said it would have been much worse if I hadn't put her under water straight away for 20 mins! Thank you for the great training that really helped me at a time of real crisis!
I just wanted to say that we found the training so helpful and we were fully able to take it all in which is something I was worried about! Please God I never have to use the training but I feel empowered knowing I would know what to do now. Many thanks
