This is a very basic introduction to first aid and defibrillation aimed at children between the ages of eight and 11, but it can suit children of any age. The flexible course is perfect for primary schools, sports clubs and groups such as cubs and brownies, and sessions are designed to be friendly and informal whilst covering a range of life saving skills.
The course shows complete respect for the child’s ability, does not use any confusing terminologies and instils the importance of helping someone who is poorly or injured. A fun candidate pack including full colour booklet, worksheets, certificate and exclusive Mini Medic syringe style pen is also available to add value to sessions.
A range of topics are covered during the workshops, these include…
- First aid kits
- First aid safety
- Contacting the emergency services
