First Aid For Young Children | Kid's First Aid

The Benefits of Learning First Aid for Young Children and Where to Find a Local Course

If your child had an accident, would you know how to act? All parents worry about the safety of their kids, but many don’t have the skills to administer first aid in an emergency. The moments in between an accident and the ambulance arriving are crucial. If you want to be prepared for any situation regardless of how unlikely, you might want to learn more about what we can offer to support your understanding of first aid for children.

Kids First Aid is a leading nationwide provider of childrens first aid courses, all of which are led by qualified paramedics. We offer training in most Australian major cities, including Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth. During our three-hour child first aid course, you’ll learn how to administer first aid to treat all the most common household emergencies, including:

  • Choking
  • Burns
  • Fractures
  • Broken bones
  • Bleeding
  • Poisoning and
  • Drowning

We’ll tell you which dated treatments are now considered dangerous–after all, knowing what NOT to do is just as crucial as understanding the correct first aid applications in emergencies.

If you live in a remote area and can’t attend a course, we offer online training that covers everything our paramedics teach. Sign up for our online course, and you’ll gain lifetime access. You can also pass on our materials to family, friends, and colleagues.

  • Learn first aid for your children from qualified paramedics
    A paramedic’s job is to provide crucial emergency treatment to patients before the ambulance arrives at the hospital, which is why they’re best suited to provide first aid training. All our instructors are fully-qualified health professionals who are highly trained in paediatric care.

    Ambulances can’t reach the scene of an accident instantly, which is why it’s critical to know how to act until help arrives.
