The FIRST AID ESSENTIALS FOR CHILDREN course is intended primarily for those who are expected to provide CPR and first aid directly to children.  The course targets all lay responders such as parents, caregivers, guardians, domestic workers, or family members of a child at high risk for sudden death, and other laypersons wanting to learn first aid essentials for children.


The course provides hands-on practice in the skills of first aid for children in the home, including accident prevention, medical emergencies, trauma injuries, environmental emergencies, CPR, choking and the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).  A 20-page student workbook is provided to each participant for review before, during and after the course.


After completing the course, each participant will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

This course is an attendance only course and is not accredited as a level 1 first Aid course by the Department of Labour.
