New First Aid Course - Paediatric First Aid Refresher Training

Paediatric First Aid Refresher Training is here! This course has been designed to be used alongside either First Aid at Work Refresher OR our Emergency First Aid at Work Refresher for anyone that is working with infants or babies. These courses recap the first aid knowledge and skills you covered during your practical first aid training and help to bridge the gap until your next practical session. They can also be used as an introduction to procedures and techniques in preparation for a practical first aid course.

The HSE is still endorsing the use of online First Aid Refresher courses during the pandemic.

Here's a sneak peak of what you can expect to see in this course...

Who is the course for?

This course is for those who have already completed or are about to complete their practical first aid training and those working with children and/or babies that wants to refresh their memory on common first-aid practices. This training should be taken in addition to either our First Aid at Work Refresher OR our Emergency First Aid at Work Refresher programmes as a full recap for First Aiders on what is required of them. 

What's in the course?

There are some distinct differences that first aiders need to know about when performing first aid on babies or children that differ from the techniques used on adults. Our training provides visual demonstrations showing how to perform the Primary Survey steps D-R-A-B on children/babies. Learners will also be provided with demonstrations of what how to put a child in the recovery position, giving CPR to a child or baby, using an AED on a child or baby what do it if a child is choking or if a baby is choking.

Please note that this online training course does not give you full competency in First Aid. It provides general awareness but should not be used as a replacement for practical training.
