Mini Medics for Kids in Ballymena. Think about training your kids in First Aid?
Mini Medics is a 1 or 3 hour course for kids in schools in Ballymena, A relatively new course for Ballymena First aid. This concentrates on training our children boosting their confidence and social abilities. These courses empower and prepare our children for later in life. Equipping them to deal with life threatening incidents it builds their skills and confidence to help the vulnerable at a moments notice.
What would your child do in an emergency
The mini medics training programs are interactive with theory and practical skills. It covers a range of subjects including safety, primary survey, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation and safe use of a defibrillator. As the course further develops it deals with more conditions, dealing with cuts and bleeding to choking and asthma. The programs are ideally aimed at children aged between 8 and 11 but can be offered to older ages equally.
Children today are driven heavily by the use of technology. At Ballymena First aid I recognise the need for learning and incorporating this and do so by using QCPR manakins. The purpose of this is that you can give instantaneous feedback to the student which helps in their development. This also helps the instructor in identifying small mistakes and adds to the rapport that I can build with my students . I can also use this technology to communicate with the delegates as well by using a variety of social media platforms.
Draft legislation is currently being put together for children in Primary schools in England to be taught first aid.
