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 2-day paediatric first aid course 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.
This course will change to RQF from QCF on 1st January 2017. Existing qualifications will still be valid when this change occurs.
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 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.
