What will you learn in this course?
This course taught in English provides practical, hands-on training on the fundamentals of first aid for children and infants. We’ll show you what to do if your child is choking, how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on infants, children and adults, and how to manage seizures, accidents and injuries, burns and other types of medical emergencies.
The course will cover:
- How to respond to a first aid emergency involving a baby or a child.
- How to help a baby or child who is unresponsive and breathing;
- What to do if your child has swallowed something harmful;
- How to recognize and manage early stages of the most common childhood diseases, injuries, and illnesses.
The training covers more than just serious injuries and life-threatening events. There are plenty of things that can happen to babies and children that might be frightening for parents but aren’t necessarily serious enough to merit an ambulance ride. You also will learn how to manage these types of events.

“I was glad to take the pediatric first aid course. The instructor was great and made the training interesting and memorable. The small number of participants made it possible for the trainer to pay attention to everyone's needs and progress. The course helped me learn a lot about handling babies, what happens in case of an emergency, and how to prepare for such an event.”
“I enjoyed FirstMed's first aid course a lot. Being a nanny, I can use what we learned in practice while taking care of babies and small children. The location was great, and I loved that it was in central Budapest with good transportation accessibility. The instructor made sure we understood all of the material we were learning. It was very important that we could try in practice, how to do resuscitation on dolls. I also learned what to do if a child swallowed something - which happens every now and then with a small child. We also learned in practice what to do with common injuries, cuts, and wounds.”
“My wife and I were expecting our first child, and we wanted to make sure we were prepared for any potential emergencies. That's why we decided to take FirstMed's pediatric first aid training course. The trainer was friendly and professional and kept us interested throughout the three-hour session. We learned how to correctly perform CPR on a doll, as well as what to do if our child swallowed something or got hurt while playing outside. The instructor also gave us tips on how to prevent minor injuries in the future.”
