About this 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 –for example, if a child is choking or needs CPR.

This Paediatric First Aid Refresher Training is the perfect course for anyone who works with children or babies as part of their job. Our training provides visual demonstrations showing how to perform the Primary Survey steps D-R-A-B on children/babies as a recap for First Aiders.

This Paediatric First Aid Course 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. This course looks at DR AB, the Recovery Position for a child, giving CPR and using an AED on a child or baby, and what to do if a baby is choking.

Clear and easy to follow

Clear and easy course to follow

5 star course

This course was visually clear and information and instructions were verbally descriptive and informative to the visual images. At the end of each section a summary was given that was really effective. The time frame to complete this refresher training was brilliant. Many thanks.

To the point. Did not cover everything

Easy to follow and to the point. It was good having two voices. As listening to one voice all the time, your attention can waiver. Found it interesting, however it did not deal with injuries such sprains/twists, broken bones, scalds and burns and anything else I have not mentioned.

Clear and consise

Really liked the videos to follow. Having live models then switching to the dummy was good to see.The brief summary was useful after each video

easy to use

very easy to use and simple to understand

Clear and concise
