Safe Sprouts Workshops
Safe Sprouts is committed to delivering the highest quality education, and we ensure we adhere to the highest ethical standards at all times. The terms and conditions detailed below are designed to ensure we provide all our prospective customers with accurate information. This demonstrates our commitment to delivering full transparency across all operations.
The Safe Sprouts workshops are non-accredited. Currently there are no accredited courses in Australia for specific Baby & Child First Aid for parents and caregivers. Safe Sprouts workshops will only be run by Registered Paramedics with the Australian Health and Practitioners Regulation Agency.
The workshops offered by Safe Sprouts are designed to provide participants with paediatric first aid knowledge and skills. Training does NOT constitute a medical qualification. Safe Sprouts accepts no responsibility for the subsequent actions of any individuals who complete this course of study. First aid training involves moderate physical activity, including demonstrating CPR on the floor. Safe Sprouts does not accept any responsibility for any harm suffered as a result of participating in the training provided.
Photos may be taken by our educators throughout the session. These images may be utilised on our social media platforms, website and other marketing material mentioning the organisation name. If you do not apply with this term, you must contact us before the session advising so.
Safe Sprouts reserves the right to cancel or arrange an alternative date for a course. Under these circumstances, Safe Sprouts will endeavour to provide notice of the cancellation to participants and will arrange an alternative session for participants to attend.
For Safe Sprouts public courses, we require the full payment before training. For private courses, we require a full payment upfront (charging for a minimum of 6 participants); however, organisers will be able to add additional participants up to the training date and will be provided with an invoice to do so.
Cancellations, Refund Policy, Transfers to Alternate Courses
Notifications of cancellations or requests for a course transfer must be made to Safe Sprouts prior to your anticipated course date. We understand that the unexpected can happen, and we will do our best to find an alternative course date for you to attend! Safe Sprouts does not offer refunds on course enrolments. No refunds will be given if you have simply changed your mind.
If your course is cancelled due to current government restrictions you will be rescheduled into a future face to face workshop, no refunds will be provided.
If you are suddenly unable to attend a course for any reason, Safe Sprouts require you to contact us within 7 business days to arrange a transfer to a more suitable course date.
As the Safe Sprouts workshops are delivered in a non-accredited format, participants will be provided with a participation certificate after completion of the session.

We will also be ensuring that:

Our workshops are highly engaging and hands on. Every participant has 2 manikins each (baby and small child) which you will learn to provide rescue breaths directly in to.
Our manikins are also equipped with bluetooth technology to give you feedback on the quality of your rescue breaths and compressions via an app on your phone, so you can be even more confident on your ability to provide quality CPR in the event you might need it.
Safe Sprouts workshops are only ever run by highly experienced Registered Paramedics with backgrounds in clinical education. You know that your educator has personally attended to and treated first hand the very topics you are learning about.
