This is a very basic introduction to First Aid and Defibrillation for all children and aimed at children between the ages of 8 and 11, but it can suit children of any age.
First Aid is an important life skill and the course is kept at a basic level with no use of confusing terminologies.
At the very least, the child will be able to make an effective emergency telephone call which may be enough to save someone’s life.
The course will show complete respect for the child’s ability, make it educational and practical, and instil the importance of helping someone who is poorly or injured.
The recommended duration for this course is 3 hours. However, it can be made longer or shorter depending on the age of the children.
If you would like this delivered as a class session then we can ensure that the children get maximum benefit by tailoring the course. We are committed to helping after school clubs keep their children busy whilst they wait to go home.
Whilst spaces are limited, we can deliver fun sessions for your school.
This would need to be discussed in more detail to ensure the children get the best possible training value.
A range of subjects is covered including:-
• What is First Aid?
• First Aid kits
• Recovery position
• Safety, communication and contacting the emergency services
• DR ABC
• Resuscitation (CPR)
• Wounds and bleeding
This is a non-regulated qualification and attendance is all that is required.
Optional test/quizzes are available in the form of a worksheet if required.
A full colour certificate of attendance is included with the Mini-Medic book as a ‘cut-out’ for the child.
A maximum of 20 children can be accommodated on this course and all children should be a minimum of 8 years of age ideally. However, younger children are permitted as the course can be tailored.
We charge £15 per child. This included their certificate and book. At the end of the course the child does get to keep the book as they always refer back to it. If you would like to see a copy of the book we can provide a copy for you to look at.
Extra items: We also offer a wife range of promotional items such as hoodies, T-shirts and hats.
