Professional Pediatric 12 Hour Care for Children First Aid Course

Professional First Aid for Children Course

In the UK, professional child care providers such as nannies, nursery carers and child-minders must complete a suitable pediatric first aid course at regular intervals. The Emergency First Response 12 Hour Care for Children programme meets the standards and regulatory requirements necessary for such a first aid course. Although not a requirement globally, we recommend that this course is seriously considered by anyone either in, or considering working in a child care profession.

The course covers the same areas as the Care for Children course, but includes a more in-depth focus on the treatment and assessment of specific secondary care injuries such as burns and scalds, cuts, scrapes and eye injuries. It also covers understanding, treatment and assessment of illnesses such as Meningitis, Febrile Convulsions and Sickle Cell Disorder.

I believe the seminar definitely benefited me on a personal and professional level. Being the mother of 3 children and also working on a daily basis with children it definitely gave me a more confident feel in dealing with emergencies.
