All courses are conducted by experienced paramedics and paediatric nurses from Child Revive First Aid and the course content is specifically designed for expectant parents and parents of infants and small children.
While no longer a government requirement for Victorian venues, all our trainers work in the medical field and around vulnerable persons, and we do still require that all attendees over 18 years of age attending a face-to-face course be fully COVID-19 vaccinated or have a valid exemption. We do request proof of vaccination (or medical exemption, if applicable) prior to the course and thank you for your understanding and assistance. The safety and health of our attendees and trainers is paramount and we look forward to welcoming you to an in-person course. Alternatively, we run both of our public courses via Zoom, which you can attend from the comfort of your own home (please see course options below).
Please Note: The range of parent first aid courses listed are different to workplace accredited first aid courses as they do not incorporate adult emergency content and do not require any pre-course learning or assessment at the course. Currently, there is no workplace accredited course that is specific for only infant and child-related emergencies.
1) Limiting our class sizes.
We are holding classes in line with the allowed restrictions for each venue. We love having your children in our class. However, unfortunately, we are currently not able to accommodate children who are mobile. Babes in arms, and breastfeeding, are always welcome. We ask that children who do attend, are contained within their pram or within the strict physical distancing areas required.
2) Respecting 1.5m physical distancing.
We hold classes in line with the allowed restrictions for each venue and members of separate households will be seated at least 1.5m apart from each other.
3) Encouraging good hand hygiene and continuing high level infection control.
We have hand sanitiser and disinfectant wipes available for all participants to use. Equipment is not shared and is thoroughly cleaned before and after every class.
All of our classes are taught by expert paediatric nurses or paramedics, who are highly experienced in infection control and hand hygiene. They will always follow our strict infection control policies.
4) Modifying how we teach.
We are ensuring that we meet COVID-Safe regulations and guidelines.
We are making sure that no equipment is shared between members of separate households, and have taken steps to teach in ways that remove interaction with other participants.
5) Complying with regulations.
We are only holding classes in line with all relevant Federal & State requirements in place at the time.
We are guided by:
Please be advised that during COVID-19 you will be required to sign-in upon arrival at a course using our venue hosts sign-in procedure, which are in line with Government requirements.
6) Ensuring our educator has good health.
Our course educators will only teach if they have not been identified as, nor as a contact of, a person with confirmed COVID-19, not been advised nor are required to self-isolate due to COVID-19 circumstances; not experiencing fever, scratchy throat, cough, cold or flu like symptoms; nor are generally unwell.
7) Record keeping.
Please be advised that, during COVID-19, your contact details may be confidentially provided to our venue hosts, in line with Government requirements.
Of course, if you would prefer to learn online we have an option available for you to learn all of the content from our classes in the comfort and safety of your own home.
We ask all participants to:
1) Follow all Government & Health guidelines and DO NOT ATTEND A CLASS if they or any babies attending:
2) Respect 1.5m physical distancing before, during and after the class.
3) Maintain good hand hygiene.
We are pleased to be flexible with bookings and to reschedule bookings impacted by COVID-19 without any penalties applied.
We thought the Zoom course was excellent - very clear, engaging and just the right pace. My husband did an adult first-aid course a few years ago and found this one so much more informative.
Cathy, the trainer, was absolutely amazing. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Her class was very easy to follow. She made the class fun and enjoyable. My partner and I walked out of the class learning what we expected and wishing our midwife would be just like her. Thank you again Cathy.
