New Mini Medics Children’s First Aid Course
Mini Medics is a very basic introduction to First Aid for children between the ages of 7 and 11, taught at a basic level with no use of confusing terminologies. The course will show complete respect for the child’s ability, making it educational and practical. Mini Medics will instil the importance of helping someone who is poorly or injured, giving them the confidence and knowledge to calmly know what action to take should they find themselves in this situation.
