Paediatric First Aid

12 Hours, 2 Days, Level 3 (RQF)

OFSTED Compliant for EYFS

This is the 12 hour course which leads to the Level 3 (RQF) Paediatric First Aid certificate which is a compulsory requirement to meet the legislation for Early Years Foundation Stage establishments and those caring for EYFS children.  As such it meets all of the OFSTED requirements.


It is therefore the First Aid course of choice for playgroups, nurseries, schools and child minding services responsible for children under the age of 6 years.  The content of the course addresses the special procedures and techniques required for both babies and small children.


Lancashire First Aid Training Ltd complies with the regulations by only using baby and child manikins for practical sessions, and by ensuring there are adequate numbers so that no more than two persons are required to share a manikin.


The course content includes:


  •     Recognising and understanding vital signs in children and babies
  •     The ABC of incident management adapted for use with children and babies
  •     Care of unconsciousness - Recovery Position
  •     CPR for children and babies
  •     Using an AED

This course can be delivered on INSET Days in school.

If you would like this course to be delivered on-site we are happy to discuss this with you and provide a competitive quote.  Assuming most schools only require a small number of staff holding a Paediatric First Aid certificate it is often worthwhile acting as the host school for other establishments in the neighbourhood so as to offer a larger class number for economy.    We are also happy to advertise the event on our website to help increase your numbers if required. Please contact us to discuss your plans.


Certification life is for 3 years, each candidate receives a Paediatric First Aid Manual.


NOTE: All our courses are practical and active, we normally expect all candidates to be able to bend, kneel, lie and roll another person on floor mats, and to perform CPR on a manikin.  We advise all candidates to dress so that they will feel comfortable to do so.
