First Aid for Parents
... and anyone caring for babies and children

If your child fell ill, lost consciousness, was choking or bleeding – would you know how to help?

Caring for children is one of life’s most joyous and demanding tasks. When accidents happen – at home, in the playground, on holidays – knowing how to help your child quickly is of paramount importance. Yet many parents and caregivers feel overwhelmed and helpless in the face of an emergency situation. Don’t be one of them!

Learning first aid will give you the confidence to save your child’s life when it really matters.

Our first aid course has been developed specially for parents, grandparents and anyone else caring for infants, toddlers or older children. It is based on current official first aid guidelines, as specified by the German Red Cross and the European Council for Resuscitation.

This hands-on three-hour course will focus on the most common concerns parents and caregivers have, including:

  • Handy hints on how to prevent accidents in the first place.
  • Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for babies, toddlers and older children
  • Choking
  • Fevers / seizures or convulsions
  • Burns
  • Hypothermia
  • Heat exhaustion / heat stroke
  • Broken bones / sport & playground injuries
  • Bleeding and wounds
  • Drowning
  • Recovery position
  • Electrical accidents
  • Shock
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Poisoning / chemical burns
  • Pediatric emergencies
  • Damaged teeth
  • What to stock in your medicine cabinet at home.
  • What to stock in your travel first aid kit.

You will have the opportunity to become familiar with emergency situations, including practicing CPR and other common first aid scenarios. There will also be time to ask questions and discuss any specific concerns you may have.

At the end of the course, you will have gained the necessary knowledge and skills to deal with an emergency situation in a calm and effective way. You will also receive our First Aid for Parents Guide and Lifesaver Certificate.

The course will be conducted by Birger Holz, a qualified paramedic and experienced educator, and his bilingual interpreter Antje Guenther, PhD.
