Please email email@example.com first to check space availability. Then, pay your course deposit via the PayPal link below. You don’t need to sign up for PayPal in order to pay. We’ll then add you to our Google calendar including more course details. You won’t receive any additional email from us besides the PayPal payment confirmation.
Note: The course is designed for adults only. Unfortunately, this course is kid’s unfriendly. Due to seriousness of topics taught, we are unable to let your child(ren) join the course. Please come alone.
Instructor Note: I’m following and enjoy the support by PADI, the world’s largest diving organisation who have co-developed this program many years ago. Please read http://emergencyfirstresponse.com for more details. I was also once a certified medical trained staff for the Tokyo Fire Department (http://www.tfd.metro.tokyo.jp/eng) and have seen things done differently, almost the old fashion way. Two-man CPR, to mention one thing. Courses held there are short* and less practise time is provided as a result. 100 course participants gather in one big hall with about 10 instructors. I personally feel that PADI is better regarding conducting, layout and quality of any course, including scuba diving. My courses are thorough, sweet, and to the point with lots of time to ask 100s of personal questions and practise on baby and adult dummies until you feel confident enough to go out and do a good deed should you ever be caught up in an emergency. We all know the basic life support rules already. We all learned it at one point. But do we have the confidence in a real emergency? Therefore, I (father of two little monkeys myself) personally do not recommend to offer this course with toddlers and babies or kids joining the course. It’s always the best idea to take this course in the first few months of pregnancy, but if that’s not possible, taking this course once your baby is here while they are being looked after by the other parent / caregiver is recommended. Plus it’s a great way to get some time away and chat and mingle with others.
*My course is 6-8h instead of 3h. One always gets what one pays for. But I don’t want to look crazy either and charge 15,000 Yen for the same course offered currently in Tokyo by other freelance Instructors.

Course Description: The Emergency First Response Care for Children course is an innovative CPR, AED and First Aid training course that teaches participants how to provide emergency care for injured or ill children (ages one to eight) and infants less than one year old. Participants learn about the types of medical emergencies that children face, and how they differ from adult conditions. The curriculum also includes the importance of attending to basic emergency situations with children, the emotional aspects of caring for children, secondary care for children, and preventing common injuries and illnesses in children.
Emergency First Response Care for Children course trains the lay rescuer to follow the same priorities of care used by medical professionals. The student masters the priorities and the procedures of patient care for infants and children in a non-stressful learning environment, which reduces the performance anxieties that interfere with learning and enhances confidence when rendering aid in a real medical emergency.
The course includes both primary care (CPR) and secondary care (first aid) skills. The primary care portion of the course prepares the rescuer to render aid to an infant or child with a life-threatening emergency such as choking or cardiac arrest. Secondary care focuses on developing secondary patient care skills and building the rescuer’s confidence to render first aid to an infant or child in need when emergency medical services are either delayed or unavailable. The Care for Children course content is based on guidelines from the Pediatric Working Group of ILCOR.
Care for Children Primary Care Course Content: Scene Safety Assessment Universal Precautions-Communicable Disease Protection & Barrier Use Primary Assessment Obstructed Airway Management (child and infant) Rescue Breathing (child and infant) Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (child and infant) Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use Serious Bleeding Shock Management Spinal Injury Management.
Care for Children Secondary Care Course Content: Injury Assessment, Bandaging and Illness Assessment.
