Teenaider first aid training is aimed at teenagers and other young people who may find themselves providing emergency medical care without immediate adult supervision. As teenagers discover their independence they might find themselves being the “grown-up” in a medical emergency- perhaps a friend has had an accident, or a parent or carer has been taken ill, then it would be down to the teenager to summon help and potentially provide basic life-saving help. Our Teenaider courses are designed to provide the skills and confidence that might be needed to help in these types of situations.
As with all the first aid training provided by Lazarus Training we believe training must be practical and aimed at the real-life situations the delegates might face, two principles we sum up as #trainforreal and “first aid training is a contact sport”. On this course your teenager will receive instruction in:
Calling for emergency help
Airway management including choking and vomiting
Control of bleeding
All training is conducted in a life-like manner and is designed to build the confidence of the teenager and ensure the principles are firmly in mind by the end of the course.
The main session is 3 hours long, with an additional 3-hour sessions available for those that wish to really explore the topic and their skills and reactions. The training is currently run at our Leigh on Sea venue, but we can travel to groups such as schools, scouts, etc.
All training is conducted by qualified instructors, most with a background in emergency services. Training involves some physical activity such as laying on the floor and clothing may get slightly dirty. For full details of what should be worn, ask our office team for our “You want to be a Teenaider” leaflet.
Our Teenaider first aid training is normally run during school holidays, but can also be arranged for weekends on request.
