Enthusiastic and informative trainer. I have enjoyed the practical parts e.g. CPR, bandaging, and dealing with shock in particular. It was a very interesting day!

The instructor was very informative, straight to the point and quick. What I’ve learnt today and in the booklet will be very helpful.

What do I need to wear when attending the paediatric first aid course?

Due to the practical nature of the paediatric first aid course, we ask that all candidates wear trousers and suitable tops.

How is the blended learning paediatric first aid course structured?

We believe that learning is most effective when candidates are actively taking part rather than sitting and listening! Therefore the course includes a range of practical and interactive activities.

During the course candidates will be supported by their Paediatric First Aid instructor in small groups of 3 or 4 to practice and explore all areas of paediatric first aid. On completion of the practical one day course candidates will have access to our e-learning module via email. Candidates will then have 2 weeks to complete the e-learning module which consists of a multiple choice test (consisting of 20 questions) and email this back to us. On completion of the e-learning module candidates will receive their certificate by first class post.

Will I receive a certificate?

Once we have received the completed multiple choice question paper candidates will be issued with a 12 hr paediatric first aid certificate suitable for Ofsted registration and valid for 3 years.

What training do the paediatric first aid instructors have?

All of our trainers have hands-on experience of dealing with first aid emergencies with children, young people and adults. We bring together a highly skilled team of trainers that have worked with the armed forces, in A&E and for the London Ambulance Service.

We understand the importance of candidates feeling confident and competent when caring for a child in a medical emergency and ensure that, on completion of the course, you are equipped with the necessary skills to confidently help should something happen.

Are there breaks in the training?

Yes; candidates will have two 15 minutes breaks and a lunch break of 45 minutes.

What happens if I lose my certificate?

If you require a replacement certificate, simply call our team who will arrange for a new certificate to be sent to you. Please note there is a £10 charge for a replacement certificate.

What happens if I book the course but can’t attend?

Our classes are restricted to 12 delegates per one paediatric first aid instructor. As per our booking terms, you are welcome to find a replacement to full your place should you not be able to attend, however, refunds are not given unless there is a medical reason (and a doctor’s note has been received).
