Why would I want to do this course?
This 6 hour course will provide you with essential life saving skills and is specifically designed for parents, relatives or carers of young children and babies. However, it does not meet Ofsted requirements and if you are a childcare professional, you may need to complete the full Paediatric First Aid Course.
An additional short module (of around 2-3 hours) in the use of external automated defibrillators (AEDs) can be added offering a dual qualification of Paediatric Emergency First Aid and AED use.
What would I do on this course?
Around 70% of the 6 hour course will be spent in interactive, practical activity. It will be delivered by qualified teachers and trainers who also have practical first aid experience in childcare settings.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
• Assess the situation so you can act safely and effectively in an emergency
• Deal with the unconscious child
• Perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on infants and children
• Deal with choking
• Administer first aid to a child who is wounded, bleeding and suffering from shock
• Provide appropriate first aid for minor injuries
• Record and report incidents
• Appreciate how to prevent cross infection
• Use available equipment
Assessment is continuous through each section of the programme.
What's included in the price?
Included in the price is the use of recommended first aid materials, an easy to follow individual course booklet and one CPR training manikin per 2 participants. You will also receive an accredited, recognised certificate, issued by ITC an awarding body, valid for 3 years.
I have a group needing training can you meet their needs?
The content of the course can be adapted to suit your needs and the context in which it may be used can be brought into the training. If you require a more specific course please contact us or have a look at our other courses. We can also deliver courses at weekends, during evenings or night shifts.
How do I know this meet my statutory requirements?
Please check whether you need to meet Ofsted or other requirements before deciding on which Paediatric First Aid Course to choose.
How do I keep my qualification valid?
To remain valid there is a requirement for you to be retrained every 3 years. Additionally, it is recommended that you undergo an annual refresher course.
