Pediatric First Aid Course

Child First Aid Training

The EFR Care for Children course primarily focuses on recognising and attending to life threatening problems with infants and children. You will also learn first aid skills that prepare you to render emergency care for common problems that are less serious. Injury and illness assessment teaches you how to identify a child's injuries or gather information about an illness to pass on to emergency medical personnel.

I learned the skills needed to effectively provide basic life support and secondary care for my young children through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice. As a parent, I now have complete confidence in my ability to provide care when an emergency situation arises.....
