This is a very basic introduction to First Aid and Defibrillation for children and aimed at children between the ages of 8 and 11, but it can suit children of any age.

Most children do not have any experience of first aid or know what to do in an emergency if they are alone or if a parent or guardian takes ill. This course gives them the skills and knowledge without using confusing terminologies and makes it a fun experience, the course materials are all designed for children and they get a course book, certificate and syringe pen to take home with them.

A range of subjects are covered including:

  • What is First Aid?
  • Defibrillation
  • First Aid kits
  • Recovery position
  • Choking
  • Resuscitation (CPR)
  • DR ABC
  • Wounds and bleeding
  • Asthma
  • Shock
  • Safety
  • Communication and contacting the emergency services

The session will be delivered at the Helly Hansen Watersports Centre, Salford Quays.
