This online Paediatric First Aid Refresher Training is suitable for anyone working with children, infants or babies. It’s a refresher or introductory course for those with a practical First Aid qualification and has been designed to work in conjunction with either our First Aid at Work Refresher or Emergency First Aid at Work Refresher programmes.

There are some distinct differences that first aiders need to know about when performing first aid on babies or children that differ from the techniques used on adults –for example, if a child is choking or needs CPR.

This Paediatric First Aid Refresher Training is the perfect course for anyone who works with children or babies as part of their job. Our training provides visual demonstrations showing how to perform the Primary Survey steps D-R-A-B on children/babies as a recap for First Aiders.

This Paediatric First Aid Course should be taken in addition to either our First Aid at Work Refresher or our Emergency First Aid at Work Refresher programmes as a full recap for First Aiders on what is required of them. This course looks at DR AB, the Recovery Position for a child, giving CPR and using an AED on a child or baby, and what to do if a baby is choking.

Please note that this online training course does not give you full competency in First Aid. It provides general awareness but should not be used as a replacement for practical training.

This training course is broken down into 2 sections:

Section 1: Introduction

For the most part, first aid procedures for children and babies are the same or very similar to those for adults, but there are some important differences you’ll need to know about if you work with children or babies.
