Empower yourself with the vital knowledge and skills of paediatric first aid with our four-hour nonaccredited courses. These courses are run by medically experienced and qualified educators, who will ensure you feel confident treating the primary medical emergencies faced by children.
New parents are often overwhelmed when their little bundle of joy comes into the world and they are jolted into reality as to how little they know about what to do in a medical emergency. Moreover, accidents often happen when the doctors are closed; the hospital is out of reach and your child needs treatment straight away. This paediatric first aid training course is an invaluable skill that could see you come to your child's rescue and save you the stress of speeding to the hospital or nearest neighbour for help.
The course, designed by paramedics, the professionals, the first responders, the ones who deal with these emergencies on a daily basis, will provide training on all the most common medical emergencies faced by babies and toddlers. What should I do if my baby chokes on solids? What should I do if my child accidentally swallows paracetamol? What should I do if my baby has a high temperature? All of these questions will be answered for you during this course. You will learn how to manage these potentially life-threatening situations and will cover hypothetical scenarios such as infant CPR, choking, drowning, asthma, anaphylaxis, poisoning, SIDS and safe sleeping, over-the-counter medications, temperatures, seizures and burns.
Whether you are new parents, grandparents, siblings or child minders, this paediatric first aid training course is undoubtedly one of the best things you can do for your family. This course is even celebrity recommended with new parents actress Kate Richie, model Megan Gale and comedian Hamish Blake all attending with their partners.
