First Aid for children is not simply a matter of thinking of them as small people, the medical needs of children can be significantly different.

Our two-day paediatric first aid course covers all you need to know to deliver effective first aid to your children, be they your own or in your care. It meets the Ofsted requirements for registered child minders and the requirements for nannies under the Approved Carers Scheme. It can also be used as evidence for employees working towards an NVQ in Childcare and Education. 

As with all our courses, the emphasis is on the development and honing of the skills needed to save life and improve patient outcomes. Delivered by trainers with exceptional medical backgrounds and experience, so they really do know their subject! 

We can add any other subject required by you so that the course is tailored to suit you and your environment, workplace or leisure activity.
