Childcare First Aid Course

This comprehensive one-day course is particularly suited to parents, family members and those that work with and care for young children or are likely to have to respond to child emergencies in the home, workplace or in the community. This paediatric first aid course will enable participants to act as a back up to Occupational First Aiders in a childcare facility. Participants will gain the necessary theoretical knowledge and learn a range of practical basic first aid skills enabling them to deal competently and confidently with common injuries and illnesses affecting children and infants.

Included in the training are the basic techniques of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and the action to take in the event of choking for children. During the resuscitation training we use a ratio of 1:1 (1 manikin for each participant) this gives you the maximum hands-on practical training and affords the best hygiene standards.
