About this course

This course contains the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to infants, children and adults, with special consideration given to asthma and anaphylaxis emergencies and managing children who are involved in and those who are witness to incidents of illness or injury.
This course is approved by Australian Child Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) and meets the requirements of First Aid (including CPR), Asthma and Anaphylaxis emergency training for educators and carers working in schools and child care centres.

Why childcare professionals need to learn CPR

Childcare CPR training is extremely important. Childcare is a profession that involves a huge amount of responsibility and often involves the care of multiple children at one time. As active children are prone to accidents, every childcare professional should be fully prepared for this to happen. Children are the most vulnerable people in our society and as their caretaker, learning CPR is one of the best ways to ensure you are prepared if they ever fall ill or have a serious accident.

Studies show that when the brain receives no oxygen for four minutes, brain tissue begins to die and even after being resuscitated, the damage will be permanent. That is why it’s so essential that paramedics visit the scene of an accident or illness immediately, and also why it’s important that childcare professionals know what to do while waiting for paramedics to arrive.

With our childcare CPR course in Brisbane, you can learn the fundamentals of resuscitating a child in a way that doesn’t cause further harm. You can ensure children in your care have the very best chance of survival.

A different kind of CPR

While much of the basics remain the same, childcare CPR is very different to regular CPR in that it takes into consideration the smaller stature and greater fragility of the bones. Furthermore, CPR training for young children focuses largely on cardiopulmonary resuscitation as a result of children being more vulnerable to choking. This is one of the most common reasons why CPR is required, but our childcare CPR training also offers advice and training for cases of drowning, suffocation, electrical shock, head trauma, and more.

The team at Fluid First Aid will walk you through the most common illnesses and injuries that children of different ages face, and the best practices to ensure that a child is kept safe while medical professionals travel to the scene. With our online video courses and hands-on workshops, you’ll learn the skills you need to save children’s’ lives.

Save time and money!

You’ll save time and money by learning online. Our online video courses have received rave reviews and even an award! We have created a course that is easy to follow and that can be accessed and used by individuals or large groups. Follow our series of online talks and workshops before meeting our experts in a hands-on experience to perfect your skills and become a qualified child first aider.

There’s no test on the day of the hands-on workshop, either. Once you’re ready and have completed the course, you’ll be issued with a nationally recognised certificate with a swift turnaround time.

You control your schedule, you learn at your own pace, and you also benefit from our highly competitive prices. With all this in mind, it’s no wonder businesses all over Brisbane (and beyond!) turn to us for our expertise. We deliver the results you need with a schedule that works around you and a price you can afford.
