Minimum of 6 hours required

This one-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid course has been designed for those who have an interest in child and infant basic life support.

Who Should Attend Emergency Paediatric First Aid Training?

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 Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid would be required to fulfil their requirements. This 6-hour qualification also makes up the first half of the 12-hour course.
