Caring for the children of others can be a full-time endeavor. Childcare professionals are on the job early and they remain until the last child has gone home for the day. There are seemingly millions of things to do everyday to care for these children and to stay up-to-date with state requirements. But when it comes to keeping your staff trained and certified in Pediatric CPR AED and First Aid, we can help.
For most classes, our instructors are able to bring enough adult and infant mannequins so that everyone in attendance has their own adult and infant mannequins. This not only helps the class go faster, but by not having to share a mannequin with someone else, it allows each student more, uninterrupted practice time on the critical life saving skills that we practice, specifically opening blocked airways of choking victims, and performing CPR on adults, children and infants, including special steps for performing CPR on a pregnant woman.
Our hands-on demonstration of our Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) will instill confidence in your staff, and have them feeling able to help out in a cardiac arrest situation with children and/or adults. Special attention is giving in our class to applying pediatric AED pads and performing CPR on children and infants. If your childcare facility doesn't have an AED, we have convenient financing plans with monthly payment options that make it very easy and affordable to have one of these life-saving devices on-hand all the time.
We also provide First Aid training across a wide variety of accidents and illnesses that will have your staff confident and able to assist the children in your care the right way while waiting for better help to arrive.
If you have a group of at least five, we will happily come to your location to teach your group. The Pediatric CPR AED and First Aid class typically takes about 90 minutes to complete.
If your staff also needs training in Fire Extinguisher Safety - that is an easy add-on that we can add to your class at a discount. Some daycare facilities also ask us for Bloodborne Pathogens training, which is also an easy add-on that we discount for you as well.
To fit your busy schedule, our instructors are available weekday evenings and on Saturday mornings. Call or text us at 321-749-9945, or fill out this form to schedule your group's instruction in Pediatric CPR AED and First Aid.
*Pediatric CPR AED and First Aid course completion certificates are issued by The American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI), which is accepted by the Florida Department of Children and Families.
