Level 3 Award in Emergency
Paediatric First Aid

Emergency Paediatric First Aid is ideal for anyone who cares for infants and children and wants to learn basic paediatric first aid skills. During this 1-day course, learners will develop the skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations, including managing an unresponsive infant or child, CPR, choking, seizures, external bleeding and more.

Please note: Ofsted Early Years and the Childcare Register require at least one first aider with a full Paediatric First Aid certificate to be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, including during outings. Childminders who are in sole charge of children must also hold a full Paediatric First Aid qualification.
