This one-day Paediatric Emergency First Aid training course is accredited by NUCO and has been designed for those who have an interest in child and infant basic life support. If you have a professional interest, i.e. you are a child-minder or school teacher etc, then this course fulfils partly the requirements of OFSTED and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
In order to obtain the full qualification, you must attend both days and complete the two units of accreditation which includes this one and J/600/2037 or U560/04 (Scotland) – Managing paediatric illness and injury.
A minimum of six hours makes up this unit consisting of theoretical and practical work, plus some pre-course
activity could be required.
A range of subjects is covered including:
Assessment is ongoing by the instructor in respect of the student’s practical ability, along with a multiple choice
question paper. A Unit Accreditation Certificate lasting three years will be issued, subject to assessment.
A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course.
Students must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace for children and infants until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.
The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
