Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid

This is a specialist training course for those staff that will be required to supervise children. The course is 2 days in duration and is approved by OFSTED (Sept 2008). Children are very different in a first aid situation and the skills needed to treat a child are usually harder to master. Students will undergo training in Paediatric emergencies and resuscitation. Currently this qualification is valid for 3 years.
We currently offer the 2 Day course required by Early Years and Foundation stage staff, and 1 Day First aid for schools for infants up to secondary school.

The 12 hour Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid is OFSTED recognised and consists of 2 units.
