Paediatric First Aid Course
Would you feel confident enough to step forward and assist someone who had fallen ill or been involved in an accident? What if that individual was a baby or child who was fragile and unable to ask for help or help themselves?
Paediatric first aid concentrates on the child and infant age groups. We recommend that anyone who is responsible for looking after children should receive this training. Whether it is your job, or you casually babysit for friends or family members when needed. The standard paediatric course will cover how to manage an ill or injured child/infant in the event of an emergency.

Accidents can happen at any time. Anyone who has experience with young children knows that you only have to take your eyes off them for a second for them to find something they shouldn’t be playing with, or get themselves into trouble. Although most injuries are accidental, it doesn’t mean that they won’t be severe. If a child is in danger, the situation can be made more difficult by individuals or bystanders not having the relevant skills or training to act appropriately. In these situations, those trying to help may freeze, not know what to do, panic or even make a serious mistake.
At TL Training, we know that paediatric first aid training can be a game-changer, and help people feel calm and act quickly and appropriately when needed.
Benefits Of Attending This First Aid Course
A lot of the information provided to you throughout the course can be transferred to an adolescent or adult if you need to administer first aid to them. Attending this course will give you the courage to act fast and confidence in yourself and your abilities. The course will provide you with the skills to deal with emergencies under pressure and how to correctly communicate with children in these circumstances.
You will learn how to deal with a range of injuries that are common in children and young people. You will also develop the skills to be proactive and attend to the child immediately.
