This is a 12 hour Paediatric First Aid Course fulfilling the requirements laid down by Ofsted, EYFS and SureStart for professional childminders and carers. The certificate is valid for 3 years but the HSE recommend candidates complete an annual first aid refresher course in the interim. Our online refresher courses would be acceptable for this purpose.
Our Paediatric First Aid Course is suitable for individual childminders or parents who would like to know more about First Aid for children. Group bookings are also available for nurseries, schools or parent and toddler groups at their own premises; please contact us to request details.
The course covers Paediatric Emergency First Aid and the management of Peadiatric Illness and Injury. The curriculum includes assessment of the situation in the event of choking; bleeding; shock; burns and scalds; etc. It also covers resuscitation techniques appropriate for the age of the casualty. For more details of the course certification and curriculum please visit the Procourses website.
If you would prefer a blended course – part video training and part classroom based – please visit the page explaining our Blended Paediatric First Aid Course.
