Materials and methods:
We analysed 100 questionnaires in this retrospective study. The questionnaires were filled in by the pre-term newborns‘ parents who took the first aid course between October 2006 and January 2009. The participants answered eight questions on a five degree scale. We analysed the results using descriptive statistics methods.

One hundred questionnaires were analysed. The return was 100%. Question: “Have you ever taken a first aid course?” 50% participants answered in the affirmative, 45% negative and 5% respondents did not answer. Question: “Was everything that was said at the course understandable?” 98% participants answered in the affirmative. Question: “Did passing this first aid course benefit you?” 99% participants answered in the affirmative.

Participants of the courses evaluated the courses and their format positively.
