Part one: Consists of a 6-hour online learning module

The eLearning module also provides access to an online Paediatric First Aid training manual, which is a valuable resource. This manual will automatically update and include amendments to the first aid protocols. This manual is available during the course and after completion of the course.

Part two:

This is a 6-hour practical session which is led by fully qualified and professional trainers.

All our Paediatric First Aid (PFA) courses comply with the Early Years Foundation Stage/Ofsted requirements and the PFA training provider is a member of The First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) who approve, monitor, regulate and quality assure. Certification is valid for 3 years.

All courses have revised training techniques which allow delegates to carry out all the practical skills safely. All delegates must demonstrate that they can undertake cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) techniques, including effective mouth-to-mouth and demonstrating to the instructor that they can perform this.

Face shields are provided to each delegate. These provide a physical barrier between the course delegate and the dummies to ensure course delegates are completely safe.
