Paediatric First Aid Course

Paediatric First Aid

Would you know what to do if a child in your care needed first aid?

Having the correct paediatric first aid provision is not only a statutory requirement for the majority of childcare providers, it is extremely important for the safety of children.

The QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) qualification is ideal for those who work or intend to work in a childcare setting as it has been specifically designed to fulfil Ofsted’s first aid requirements for early years teachers, nursery workers and childminders
(as defined within the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2014 and within the Child Care Register guide).

Successful candidates will learn the roles and responsibilities of the paediatric first aider, and will be equipped with the necessary skills to administer safe and effective treatment when dealing with a range of paediatric first aid situations.

You don’t just get a course with Cornwall Training, you get a trainer who has front line emergency service experience, full colour manuals for each person, and a first aid kit for every person. We feel why train then have no kit to deal with a situation. So you leave after the course fully prepared and confident to save a life.

The course can be delivered at our training centre in St Austell. If you have a suitable area, we can also deliver at your premises.

We offer a range of First Aid Courses for all business needs. More information can be found HERE

The price includes all equipment, Registration and certification, refreshments throughout the course, and course manuals to keep.
