EFR Care for Children

Expert teaches students some vital skills





I am First Aid trained do I need this Care for Children Course?


Ask yourself if your child or someone else's child (right now) began choking or fell and injured him or herself in front of you, do you feel able to provide adequate care?

What is the Course all about and how is it different?


The Care for Children course is a CPR, AED and First Aid training course that teaches participants how to provide emergency care for injured or ill children (ages one to eight) and infants less than one year old. You'll learn about the types of medical emergencies that children face, and how they differ from adult conditions. The curriculum also includes the importance of attending to basic emergency situations with children, the emotional aspects of caring for children, secondary care for children, and preventing common injuries and illnesses in children.

The course includes both primary care (CPR) and secondary care (first aid) skills. The primary care portion of the course prepares you to render aid to an infant or child with a life-threatening emergency such as choking or cardiac arrest. Secondary care focuses on developing secondary patient care skills and building your confidence to render first aid to an infant or child in need when emergency medical services are either delayed or unavailable. The Care for Children course content is based on guidelines from the Pediatric Working Group of ILCOR, so whether it's your child or someone else's, you know you'll be capable of giving them the best care possible.
