What's involved

Upon enrolling you receive a Paediatric First Aid textbook and distance learning work pack through the post. In order to complete the pack you will need to read through the theoretical topics in the book and complete a series of short questions in your pack. 

The content of which is then either tested at the end of the practical day or after the course (via email) if you wish to take more time.

The practical day teaches the skills required to save the life of an infant or child in the event of an emergency. Through the use of demonstrations and hands on practice our friendly team of instructors will ensure you are confident to use these skills should the need arise.

What you get out of it

The 12 hour Paediatric First Aid Qualification is awarded once both the theory and practical modules are complete.

The certificate can be used as part of your registration with Ofsted for individuals as well as private employers. 

This qualification will ensure you have the correct training to meet Ofsted requirements for Early Years settings such as schools, nurseries and after school clubs.
