Emergency Paediatric First Aid

The Emergency Paediatric First Aid training course provides learners with skills that focus on emergency scenarios when looking after young children and infants.

Course description

Who should attend?

This course is for people working with and caring for babies and young children.

This course is designed to supplement paediatric first aid provision and will not meet the EYFS, Childcare Registration and Ofsted requirements. The requirements specify that at least one person who has a current full paediatric first aid qualification must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, and must accompany children on outings. Childminders, and any worker who might be in sole charge of the children for any period of time, must hold a current full paediatric first aid certificate.

If you require a full paediatric first aid certificate, please take the Paediatric First Aid – Two-Day Course.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
