Paediatric First Aid
Paediatric First Aid Training
This 12-hour Paediatric First Aid course is suitable for any childcare professionals e.g. nannies, nursery workers, children’s activity providers and early years teachers. It will give you the knowledge and skills to provide the initial treatment for a range of baby and child First Aid conditions and incidents, in a prompt, safe and effective manner.
The course is interactive and assessed through both practical scenarios and written questions, and the regulated certificate lasts for three years. If you have completed this course at least once face to face with a trainer, then you can choose a blended option where the first 6 hours are completed online, followed by 6 hours in a classroom.
We also offer the 6 hour Emergency Paediatric First Aid qualification for childcare assistants, which forms day 1 of the 12 hour course.
