If you are Paediatric First Aid trained, you can conduct first aid in a medical emergency and potentially help save a life. Did you know that accidental injuries on children are a major health problem throughout the UK?
It is important to be educated on the welfare and safety of children by being Paediatric First Aid trained. Knowing the basic first aid procedures to allow you to conduct first aid is vital.
Although most injuries for children will be accidental, it doesn’t mean that they won’t be severe. Statistics show that accidental injury is one of the most common cause of death in children over the age of one. Therefore, it is a sensible option to know how to conduct first aid if necessary.
With high statistics like this, your child could be at risk of not getting all the help they need from you in an emergency.
Paediatric First Aid is a very important qualification if you are in an environment with children. Whether they are in the workplace or they are your own having this qualification can be very beneficial.

The course is ideal for the likes of teachers, nursery nurses, nannies and childminders who are surrounded by children daily. If you work in a children’s playground or any kind of amusement park the qualification would also be ideal.

A lot of the information picked up can also be transferred to an adult if you need to administer first aid to them.
The course will give you the courage and knowledge to deal with an emergency under pressure. It is vital to have belief in your ability in an incident with a child, especially for those who teach younger children who can be difficult to communicate with.

Although, if the burn is more serious, make sure to call an ambulance immediately.
