Paediatric 12 hour infant & child First Aid Level 3

This accredited qualification provides theoretical and practical training in First Aid techniques that are specific to infants aged 0 to 1, and children aged from 1 year old to 18 years old.   Learners will become familiar with the role of the paediatric first aider and be able to assess and react appropriately to an emergency situation, such as a child or an infant who is unresponsive, has an airway obstruction or is suffering from shock.

Topics also included are wounds, fractures, dislocations, injuries to the head, neck, back, eyes, ears or nose, poisoning, bites or stings and electric shock.

This qualification consists of two units and is provided over a period of 2 days with a minimum contact time of 6 hours per unit. Our Paediatric courses meet the latest learning outcomes laid down by the Awarding Organisations.

This qualification fully meets the requirements set out by OFSTED and the Early Years Foundation Stage.

To comply with current requirements in the childcare sector, you must take this qualification again after three years.

We also offer Refresher courses as well as Emergency Paediatric First Aid (EPFA) and Paediatric First Aid for Nannies & Au Pairs.

How are you assessed?

Assessment for this course is carried out in two ways: skills assessment and end of course exam. 

Throughout the course your instructor will observe learners as they carry out skills assessments. These are completed by participating in demonstrations and using specialised first aid equipment. 

At the end of the course the instructor will provide learners with a QR code (or link) which will take the learner to a short online exam. 

Upon completion, learners will be qualified and will receive a digital certificate. This will be valid for 3 years.
