Emergency Paediatric First Aid (6 hr)


Completing this course will provide candidates with the essential knowledge and skills to administer emergency paediatric first aid in various settings. It teaches basic life-support skills and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, to enable candidates to deal with life-threatening emergencies.

Who needs this qualification?

The Emergency Paediatric First Aid course has been developed for candidates working in childcare, or those otherwise responsible for caring for infants and children, who are not required to have an Ofsted/EYFS qualification but want to learn about emergency paediatric first aid.

The national standards for first aid in childcare settings state that ‘at least one person with a current paediatric first aid certificate must be on the premises at all times when children are present.’ Additionally, at least one person with a current paediatric first aid certificate must accompany every outing.
