At OC Safety, we're proud to make the world a safer place by offering effective, easy-to-understand safety training and certification classes to organizations and individuals throughout the Orange County, CA area. We offer a wide range of safety training ranging from foundational skills like CPR & First Aid to specialized certification courses like our HIPAA Compliance Training Certification. But one of our most important safety training courses is also one that gets often overlooked: Pediatric First Aid.
What to Expect From Our Pediatric First Aid Training
Most people understand the importance of getting trained in CPR & First Aid. But while this class is a great place to get started with safety training, the skills needed to provide CPR & first aid to children are different from those for adults – and that's why our Pediatric First Aid class is so important for anyone who regularly supervises children.
Our Pediatric First Aid certification class offers a comprehensive overview of the skills needed to provide first aid and care to children of any age. In addition to training you in pediatric CPR, we also cover other critical pediatric first aid skills, including:
- Controlling bleeding & bandaging wounds
- Identifying & treating shock
- Allergic reactions
- How to use an epinephrine pen
- Heart-related emergencies
- Hypothermia and cold-related emergencies
- Bites & stings
- Broken bones & sprains
- Bleeding from the nose
- Head, neck, and spine injuries
Should I Get Certified in Pediatric First Aid?
Our Pediatric First Aid certification course teaches critical safety skills that could save lives in the event of an emergency, so it's valuable to anyone. But it's especially important for people who spend a lot of time supervising or being around children. This includes teachers, camp counselors, scout leaders, babysitters and other childcare providers, members of youth organizations, parents, and grandparents. Even if Pediatric CPR certification isn't a requirement for your job or you don't often play a supervisory role, these skills could be the difference between life and death during an emergency involving a child.
