Paediatric First Aid Training

Course Duration: - 2 Days (inc practical session), Maximum of 12 delegates.


The course is taught by qualified medical and emergency services personnel and is designed for professionals wishing to become a paediatric first aider in the workplace and those with a responsibility for the welfare of infants and children; including teachers, childminders, Au Pairs and playgroup leaders. This Paediatric First Aid course is normally held over two days (an intensive 1 day course can be held for small groups) and meets the requirements of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) for staff to have at least 12 hours of paediatric first aid training.

The course consists of two units, Emergency Paediatric First Aid and Managing Paediatric Illness, Injuries and Emergencies, which our highly skilled instructors teach in an interactive and engaging manner.

On the course candidates will learn the essential first aid skills to deal with young children, including CPR, resuscitation, dealing with choking, bleeding, asthma, allergic reactions and much more. You can be safe in the knowledge that people who have trained with us will be given the knowledge to act in an emergency involving this age group.
