Course Overiew

This 1 day emergency paediatric first aid course has been specifically designed to provide students with the vital skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations that could arise when looking after children. 

This Ofqual regulated qualification is accredited by Qualsafe Awards and is suitable for:

Emergency first aid training course for people working with children and babies

  • Parents or family members who want to learn key paediatric first aid skills
  • Those who work with children and are not required to comply with Ofsted’s Childcare Register or Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) requirements*
  • Those providing additional first aid provision in settings that already have the required trained paediatric first aiders to meet EYFS or Ofsted Childcare Register requirements

*Those who need to comply with Ofsted’s Childcare Register or EYFS requirements should complete the 2 day Paediatric First Aid course.


Assessment and Requalification

Learners will be continually assessed throughout the duration of the course with all successful candidates receiving a QA Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (RQF) certificate, which is valid for a period of 3 years.


Refresher Training

HSE guidelines now state that employers should ensure that all qualified first aiders “remain competent to perform their role”. In order for employers to meet this requirement, it is recommended that first aiders attend annual refresher training.


Why Choose First on Scene?

With years of experience dealing with hundreds of paediatric emergencies, our expert trainers draw on their own first aid experiences to make learning fun and memorable. This ensures that learners leave with the confidence and vital lifesaving skills needed to deal with a wide range of emergency situations.
