We now provide Paediatric 1st Aid training in Africa!

What is Paediatric 1st Aid training?

This training concentrates solely on the child and infant age groups. This is useful to full time childcare workers such as teachers, childminders, nannies, nursery staff and children themselves…from 8 years up! Standard paediatric courses will cover how to manage an ill or injured child / infant in the event of an emergency. 

The training covers key essentials that will give you our trained First aiders to ability where possible to PERSERVE life, ALLIVATE suffering, PREVENT the condition from worsening and PROMOTE recovery!

This Paediatric First Aid course has been designed by a qualified first-aider to help parents, carers, teachers, and anyone else who lives or works with children, learn the basics of first aid so that they can react appropriately in an emergency situation. Children can be taught as well! Children are great at remember things!
