Teaching Children What To Do In Emergencies
Introducing Our Popular First Aid Course For Children
This is a very basic introduction to First Aid and Defibrillation aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 12 upwards.
The course is kept at a basic level with no use of confusing terminologies and will show complete respect for the child's ability, make it educational and practical and instil the importance of helping someone who is poorly or injured.
Duration is 3 hours dependent on the syllabus you want covered, including educational, theoretical and practical teaching sessions.
We can also provide a 1 hour course for younger children.
A range of subjects are covered including:-
• What is First Aid?
• First Aid kits
• Recovery position
• Safety, communication and contacting the emergency services
• DR ABC
• Resuscitation (CPR)
• Wounds and bleeding
• Shock Assessment
This is a non-regulated qualification and attendance is all that is required.
Optional test/quizzes are available in the form of a worksheet if required.
A full colour certificate of attendance is included with the Mini-Medic book as a ‘cut-out’ for the child.
We run courses in venues throughout the South West. Please contact us for details of a course near you if you would like your child to take part.
