Childcare First Aid
We proudly offer St Mark James childcare first aid courses. This first aid course is unique only to the St Mark James and only certified St Mark James training providers can offer this course. This course is designed for candidates that want to or work in the child care industry. Candidates have the option of selecting either emergency child care first aid or standard child care first aid courses. Emergency child care first aid courses are one of the most intensive first aid courses offered through the St Mark James. It is a 8 to 10 hours course that mirrors the first aid content of a standard first aid course. Standard child care first aid courses are almost identical to standard first aid courses.

Candidate enrolled in either child care first aid course will learn the same amount of first aid and CPR content. Both child care first aid courses include CPR level “B” and AED training. Upon completion candidates will receive a St Mark James child care first aid, CPR and AED certificate that is valid for 3 years.
