CPR for Babysitters and Expecting Parents
For parents or expecting parents looking to ensure they are ready to care for their children or Babysitters who want to improve their childcare abilities and the confidence of their employers, this course is built for you. The class is designed specifically for those who wish to learn how to respond to medical emergencies involving children. You will learn how to assess medical situations, treat minor cuts and scrapes (Basic First Aid), as well as how to perform CPR and choking rescues.
The instructor, George Jenkins, is a trained paramedic with over 12 years of experience in the field. He will bring his experience to the course with the knowledge of how to handle emergency situations.
At the end of this one day course you will leave with a book based on the course, a child CPR mask, and a better sense of how to respond to the day-to-day and emergency medical needs of children.
