Paediatric First Aid Training

Who is the qualification aimed at?

Our Paediatric First Aid course meets and exceeds the requirements laid down by Ofsted, EYFS and Sure Start. This course is suitable for people working with adults, infants and children i.e. child minders and carers. The course is run over 2 days with a minimum of 12 hours contact time.

If you want to save time in the classroom but still meet the required hours, we offer a blended version where you complete half the course using our video online training and then attend one day in the classroom.
