Tiny Tots First Aid

The course addresses the most common incidents attended by paramedics involving Tiny Tots. The course was written by paramedics, and the content was checked, and endorsed by, a sub-specialist paediatrician here in the Southern Highlands NSW.

This is a non-VET course: it does not give you a Statement of Attainment. It is an information session for new parents, carers and grandparents.

Attendees at this 3-hour course are typically parents and carers, who will learn to:

  • stay calm during an emergency
  • safeguard their home and surrounds, to show preventative measures that can be easily addressed but may not be apparent
  • recognise a sick child. We provide and explain a table which should be the “go to guide” for recognising a sick child.
  • stabilise a sick child, with basic first aid
  • know whether to treat the child at home, take the child to a doctor, take the child to hospital, or call an ambulance.

We also cover:

  • choking emergencies
  • burns
  • bites, stings and envenomation
  • asthma and anaphylaxis
  • meningococcal, whooping cough and chicken pox.
