What is Paediatric First Aid?

This Paediatric First aid is fully accredited and meets the requirements in the Early Years Framework. It is providing training for schools, nurseries and child minders who have children aged from birth to 5 year old within their care.

* It is essential there is someone in the building or outing that holds the Level 3 Paediatric First Aid training qualification when children are present of this age range.

How many first aiders do I need?

As stated above you must have at least one trained member of staff at all times. However you must also comply with HSE so have one first aider per 50 members of staff. However it is important to consider covering absences, breaks, sickness etc to ensure you always have someone holding this 2 day training Paediatric First aid Training Course at all times.

Cost of course?

I can deliver the Paediatric First aid course at your school, nursery etc or at my training centre. The course is £125 per person however I offer group bookings for a booking of 5 or more people as long as they are all booked at the same time, they do not all have to attend the same course. This might make it easier if you have a few members of staff who need training for them all not be away for the training at the same time. Contact me for more information.

Course length?

The course would be 2 x 6hrs training. This would normally be delivered over 2 days. However I can split the course over more days if it is easier to have 2-3 hour chunks rather than 2 full days.
