FIRST AID FOR BABYSITTERS - for teenagers looking after younger children.

About the course:

Because they are caring for someone else’s children in someone else’s environment, babysitters are faced with a host of different problems!

This course looks at:

  • The different safety issues with which babysitters have to contend;
  • CPR (practice with manikins);
  • Choke-rescue techniques (practice with manikins);
  • Dealing with other emergency situations such as burns, allergic reactions, poisonings, seizures, bangs on the head, broken bones, etc;
  • Getting help: phone the parents or phone an ambulance?

Everyone on the course receives a booklet, to complement the explanations and demonstrations on the course. Participants also receive a certificate. The course is two hours long.
