Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid

Emergency Paediatric First Aid (1-day course)

The Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid is ideal for anyone working in the childcare sector wishing to become an emergency paediatric first aider.
With a wealth of paediatric first aid experience, the trainers at RT Safety Training will help to make the training relevant and engaging. The Emergency Paediatric First Aid course is delivered over one day and outlines best practice for dealing with first aid emergencies that affect infants and children.

Employers and managers should check that the syllabus meets the needs of their first aid risk assessment. For more in-depth training, it is advisable to choose the 2-day Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid course, regulated by Qualifications Wales.
