Childcare first aid training

Paediatric first aid covers a multitude of skill sets and responses to many medical situations. Its primary aim is to provide immediate medical care and treatment that will either resolve the situation (in less serious 'everyday' cases) or provide an essential short-term emergency stop-gap until professional medical assistance is in place.

This paediatric first aid course covers all of the key topics including: emergency planning, assessing a situation, basic Life Support, CPR, shock, fractures, bleeding and a range of other minor illness and injuries.

Please be aware that having a theoretical knowledge on its own is not enough to be considered competent in paediatric first aid and practical demonstration in some areas is required to complete this training. Please contact us to arrange this.

Who would this paediatric first aid course suit?

Paediatric first aid is a skill that would be useful for anyone that works with children and infants. This includes those working in nursery, school and pre-school environments, as well as professional childminders, club leaders and sports coaches.

Although it can sometimes be difficult in what are often emotionally-charged circumstances, First Aiders need to remain as calm and objective as possible, especially when there is a medical emergency. Having the requisite training and knowledge gives you the confidence to deal with the situation effectively.

The online format allows you to progress through the modules at your own speed, and at times when it's convenient for you to absorb the information.
