This one-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid course has been designed for those who have an interest in child and infant basic life support.
If you have a professional interest, i.e. you are a child-minder or school teacher, etc. then this course partly fulﬁls the requirements of OFSTED and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). OFSTED and the Early Years Foundation Stage require you to have 12 hours of paediatric ﬁrst aid training, so the 2-Day Award in Paediatric First Aid would be required to fulﬁl their requirements.
A range of subjects is covered including –
- Responsibilities and reporting
- Assessment of the situation
- Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
- Wounds and bleeding
- Minor injuries
Assessment is ongoing by the instructor in respect of the learner’s practical ability, along with a multiple choice question paper.
A three year certiﬁcate will be issued, subject to assessment.
A maximum of 12 learners are allowed, they must be a minimum of 16 years of age and a certiﬁcate can be offered to all, subject to assessment
