When a child is injured or taken ill, your approach to first aid will be different to the way treatment is administered to adults.
A child could potentially be more distressed than an adult, even with less serious injuries, while some medical equipment requires specialist child-friendly components. For example, defibrillators come with pads specifically designed for use with children suffering a cardiac arrest.
This industry leading 2-day (1 day in a classroom, 1 day online learning) blended paediatric first aid course offers flexibility and will ensure you know how to deal with injuries to children in your care and take confident, decisive action to treat a range of injuries.
Who is it for?
Most professionals working in childcare need to have some form of first aid training. This course is ideal for anyone working directly with children, such as nursery staff, teachers and classroom assistants, as well as workers in places where children are likely to be visiting, such as leisure centres and tourist attractions.
Learning about paediatric first aid will ensure your company is best placed to deal with these incidents and is aware of the most up-to-date advice on the subject.
