Diagrama Foundation mini medics training for children

Diagrama's training service is helping school children become life-savers with a new course to equip them with first aid skills.

The Mini Medics course teaches children as young as 7 how to administer CPR and how to use a defibrillator. Students will also learn how to bandage and dress a wound, help someone in shock and put someone in the recovery position - among other skills.

The course is aimed at children from year 4 upwards but can be tailored to children of any age and ability.

Shane Newcombe, Diagrama's training operations manager said: "Our Mini Medics course is a fantastic way for children to learn crucial skills in a fun and educational way so that they have confidence if they should ever have to deal with an emergency.

"It provides a brilliant opportunity for them to take part in the practical exercises, using professional equipment to hone their skills on and help them stay calm and look after someone who is poorly or injured."

The Mini Medics course is aimed at schools and children's organisations and starts from just £15 per child. The course length and syllabus can be tailored according to need and can last between 2 and 3 hours, or a half day session, with a short break.
