Have you ever been in a situation where a child or teenager or colleague at your school required urgent medical attention or was unconscious and required CPR? Did you have the know-how to help them? Or did you stand back powerless and unable to save their life or alleviate their pain?
Children whilst in your care are your responsibility. As such you need to ensure that you have the skills and knowledge needed to step in and assist them, should the situation arise, until proper medical attention arrives.
The value of keeping your First Aid and CPR qualifications up to date is fairly obvious, particularly if you’re working as a teacher. Children and teenagers are highly prone to accidents and illness, and every day an increasing number of children across the world suffer seizures, asthma and severe allergic reactions (such as anaphylaxis) to nuts and other food.
FirstAidPro is a leading mobile first aid training organisation who offer specialised courses for teachers and other school workers. If you want to become a pro at first aid, we can help.
In the case of a severe Anaphylactic reaction, knowing how, where and when to correctly use an Epipen can be the difference between life and death. Likewise, a child suffering from an intense asthma attack can potentially be at deadly risk if no-one is able to administer asthma reliever medication.
In addition to full, comprehensive first aid training, our nationally accredited HLTAID012 Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting course is custom build for the needs of teachers and educators, and provides training in responding to and administering medication for both asthma and severe allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis. For a workplace, this component of the course can even be done as an on-site stand alone course – to supplement existing first aid training. Our Asthma Management Course satisfies SA Health ‘Specific Learning Objectives’ and each successful student receives a statement of attendance in Asthma Management (wallet sized card) which is accepted by pharmacists throughout South Australia.
