A blend of self-paced online learning and a hands-on skill session designed to equip participants to respond to paediatric patients in a cardiac arrest.

The blended delivery mode has been developed to include short video lectures, video demonstrations, multiple choice quizzes and case studies to ensure it's both engaging and can be applied in your workplace.

The online learning component must be completed prior to attendance at the practical session. Typically the self-paced learning will take between 4 and 5 hours to complete.

Following completion of the online theory, you will attend a practical workshop with skills stations, during which you will rotate through to practice the techniques on manikins and receive individual instruction.

COVID-19 Update

We understand that the current situation can make it difficult to commit and plan face-to-face education. To assist with your decision making we can confirm:

  • Increased hygiene measures are being implemented at all our course venues

In the event that a course needs to be postponed, or cancelled, due to a change to COVID restrictions affecting the course and/or presenter, we will work with registrants to transfer to another date, an online course (where possible), or arrange full refunds where this is not possible.
