Unit 1 – Emergency Paediatric First Aid

Would you know what to do if you saw a child in need of first aid?
Having a good understanding of Emergency Paediatric First Aid is incredibly important for the safety of children and it could mean the difference between life and death.
The QA Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (QCF) qualification is perfect for:
• Parents or family members who want to learn key Paediatric First Aid skills
• Those who work with children and are not required to comply with Ofsted’s Childcare Register or EYFS requirements
• Those who want to provide additional support in their organisation to the paediatric first aiders that are trained to meet EYFS or Ofsted Childcare Register requirements
Successful participants will learn the roles and responsibilities of the emergency Paediatric First Aider, and will be equipped with the skills needed to deal with a range of Paediatric First Aid situations, such as performing CPR and dealing with wounds and bleeding.
This is a One day course (6hrs of Training time):
