WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TRAIN NANNIES IN FIRST AID CPR AED?
Children have accidents, whether at home, playing at the park, or in the car, your child is bound to have an accident at one point during their childhood. Similarly, our elderly loved ones often require special medical attention and also can have a higher risk of falling or suffering from other medical related episodes.
While any individual could benefit from first aid training, it’s of particular importance nannies and caregivers receive proper training on how to respond in the event of a medical emergency.
Here Kiidu endeavours to provide quality nannies that are experienced and meet all the child caring requirements and qualifications we believe should be held.
On Tuesday, 15th of October 2019 Kiidu partnered with Bangkok First Aid had pediatric (child & infant) CPR AED and First Aid training at our office. All our nannies were given an American Heart Association First Aid CPR AED course completion certificate. This will ensure all our nannies have an international standard First aid, CPR and AED training and certificates to improve their skill & knowledge. The training workshop focused on CPR, AED and first aid through a combination of knowledge development and realistic scenario. This underlines Kiidu commitment to providing the highest quality and best trained Nannies.
