Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid

First Aid for Childcarers

RT Safety Training specialises in providing first aid training for childcarers. The Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid is a comprehensive qualification for those working in the childcare sector.

Delivered over a minimum of 12 hours (usually two days), this practical and engaging training course will enable childcarers to deal with first aid emergencies affecting infants and children in their care. The paediatric first aid training is tailored to the particular childcare settings of attendees on the course. Where possible, we will ask for this information in advance to ensure that any additional conditions or scenarios can be incorporated during the training. All trainers are fully qualified and experienced at delivering first aid training to those working in childcare.
