Our first aid training courses for paediatric professionals  Paediatric First Aid Training

At Orchid Risk, our in-depth paediatric first aid training program has been carefully designed to provide early year’s professionals with the skills they need to tackle any crisis effectively.

Working with children can be a rewarding experience, but it can also present major challenges that can have far-reaching consequences if mishandled. As children explore and interact with their surroundings, they can be exposed to various hazards. Likewise, many childhood illnesses must be considered and should a child have specialist requirements; it is your duty as a first aid provider to cater to these needs.

The purpose of our paediatric first aid training course is to prepare you for the above scenarios. With our expert training, advice and educational tools, you’ll be able to react to any emergency quickly and efficiently. We’ll guide you through each of the processes, from diagnosing the type and cause of the injury to providing the appropriate care-response.
