Take a look at some of the major benefits of being trained in Paediatric First Aid.
Who does the course benefit?
The course is ideal for the likes of teachers, nursery nurses, nannies and childminders who are surrounded by children on a daily basis. If you work in a children’s playground or any kind of amusement park the qualification would also be ideal. The qualification is also aimed at parents who may be alone in a situation with their child and would need these lifesaving skills. 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.
