First Aid for Children

Essential First Aid for Children

This course is designed to give you theoretical knowledge to recognise something is wrong and help a child in a medical emergency.

This is an excellent First Aid Training package for parents and child carers to gain invaluable knowledge at their own time and pace. This course does not seek to replace a practical course and it is strongly recommended that you attend a practical First Aid training course to gain the necessary hands-on skills.

The course consists of illustrated step by step directions, flow charts, diagrams, videos and short test yourself sections fully compatible with all computers and mobile devices. You will be able to stop and start as often as you like and on completion you will be able to print your Certificate.

It is impossible to cover all eventualities within this course, or to equip you with the knowledge and skills to appropriately diagnose and treat in unpredictable real life situations. If you suspect serious illness or injury, you should always seek immediate professional medical advice.

The Author has made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information contained within the course, however this course is merely a guide and the Author does not accept any liability or responsibility for any inaccuracies or for any mistreatment or misdiagnosis of any person, however caused.

The course material has been written by Emma Hammett, Qualified Nurse, First Aid Trainer and founder of First Aid for Life in conjunction with other medical and first aid professionals. If you have any queries concerning this course, please contact
