1-Day Emergency Paediatric First Aid Course

Level 3 Emergency Paediatric First Aid : 1 day course

This one-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid course has been designed for those who have an interest in child and infant basic life support.

This qualification indicates an individual can undertake the role of first aider in a position that has responsibility of caring for infants and children. It may also have been identified as necessary by a workplace risk assessment.

If you have a professional interest, i.e. you are a child-minder or school teacher, etc, then this course partly fulfils the requirements of Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage require you to have 12 hours of paediatric first aid training, so the 2-Day Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid would be required to fulfil their requirements. This 6 hour qualification also makes up the first half of the 12-hour course.


A range of subjects are covered including :

  • Responsibilities and reporting
  • Resuscitation
  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
  • Minor injuries
  • Assessment of the situation
  • Epilepsy
  • Wounds and bleeding
  • Anaphylaxis and Shock


Typical delivery methods are predominantly practical and the course is assessed by continual observation of candidate performance.
