Enjoyable training allows pupils to become Mini Medics

To assist schools in England with their preparation for lifesaving first aid training in 2020, Eureka!, a leading supplier of first aid to schools, has sourced a fantastic training package designed to make training and learning of lifesaving skills both easy and enjoyable.

The Mini Medics First Aid and Defibrillation for Children course is supported by Nuco Training, the UK’s leading independent instructor training company specialising in first aid, defibrillation and compliance training. The course is ideal for delivery by qualified teachers/trainers who hold a current and valid 1-day emergency first aid at work or 3-day first aid at work qualification.

A fully loaded USB stick contains all the necessary presentation and resource material required by teachers to teach and promote the course. An accompanying 32 page fully illustrated A4 book is available and offers pupils a basic introduction to first aid and defibrillation. The Mini Medics course has been designed with children between the ages of 8 and 11 in mind but can be suited to a wider age range of primary school pupils. There is no confusing terminology and the book is filled with clear illustrations, making understanding lifesaving skills simple.

Once the training course has been delivered to the class, each child can cut out their certificate of attendance, located at the back of their book, to show their friends and family that they are trained Mini Medics.

Neal George, Business Manager for Eureka! tells us: “We are, and have always been, committed to sourcing the best possible first aid products. We continually listen to the needs of our customers and ensure that we can deliver on first aid supplies that really meet these requirements. The Mini Medics course was presented to us and after glowing reviews from children of our own staff, we quickly realised it would be a great addition to the Eureka! portfolio.

Replacement books are available separately from Eureka! and orders will be delivered the next working day if placed before 4.30pm. This not only ensures the longevity of the teacher training USB but also reduces any unnecessary stock holding and wasted costs of unused books.
