i know you have to have crb and first aid not sure about others but it wouldnt do any harm, you can have more children but they would have to tell you,

someone else might be able to tell you better

My mum has just become my assistant and I've been given higher numbers. She hasn't done any courses and no one has mentioned her doing a first aid course.

She just had to do a CM2 form and a CRB.

If you have a look in the "Registered Assistants" section, there are lots of posts about the pro's and con's of having an assistant.

I will move this thread into that section for you too as you will get more response there.

Good luck, in my experience an assistant is a great bonus! :)
