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.
How to book:
This course will probably be running as a two-part course in the Sept/Oct school holidays, 2021. Please register your interest and we will contact you once a date is confirmed.
