Emergency First Response Care for Children Course
The EFR 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

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.
Response Care for Children course trains the lay rescuer

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.
