Child Revive

Child Revive First Aid was founded in 2010 in response to parents and carers being unable to access quality training that was focused on paediatric first aid emergencies and conducted by experienced professionals.

Our specialised parent first aid courses provide parents and carers with practical hands-on training and are only taught by experienced paramedics and paediatric nurses. They are run in accordance with the Australian Resuscitation Council and other peak professional bodies such as Asthma Victoria, The Royal Childrens' Hospital Melbourne and The Childrens' Hospital at Westmead Sydney. As well as our range of parent first aid courses we also offer the full range of workplace accredited first aid courses.

We are always interested in hearing from paramedics and paediatric nurses who would like to join our team of trainers in Melbourne. Please email Amanda at amanda@childrevive.com.au for more information.
