There is a new first aid course in Australia that is for all teachers, childcare workers and people who offer childcare in their homes; it is called HLTAID004 Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in Education/Care Setting
Previously teachers and childcare workers would have completed a first aid course PLUS an anaphylaxis course PLUS an asthma course. This new course incorporates all 3 courses.
Asthma and anaphylaxis are becoming more and more common in children and so it is a growing concern that teachers and workers are familiar with the conditions and how to recognise, treat and manage them.
The course will teach you about anatomy of infants and children and how to manage emergencies specifically in that context. Due to the extensive information, many companies are providing two day training, but Port Lincoln Training runs a one day practical training, with a multi-choice online test, completed in your own time.
Our trainer Kylie is a nurse, with many years experience teaching first aid. Kylie also has a daughter with asthma and severe allergies; including experiencing 3x anaphylactic shock events. This means that you will learn about asthma and anaphylaxis in children according to the curriculum, backed up with vital real life experience from a nursing and family environment.
