Emergency paediatric first aid certificate
Valid for three years

This course is specifically aimed at newly qualified level two or three early years child care staff. It is suitable for people aged 16+ who care for children in any professional setting (e.g. nannies, child-minders, nursery workers and au pairs).

The emergency paediatric first aid course has been designed to meet the first aid training needs of newly qualified level two or three early years child carers, who are required to hold either an emergency paediatric first aid 1 day qualification or a paediatric first aid 2 day qualification within 3 months of starting work to be included in childcare ratios.

This course is recommended for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and meets Childcare Registration requirements.

This course covers how to help a baby or child who:

  • is unresponsive and breathing
  • is unresponsive and not breathing, including how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED)
  • is choking
  • is bleeding
  • is suffering from shock
  • is burnt or scald
  • is having a seizure.

The course also includes details on accident reporting and administering medication for those working in a childcare setting.

To ensure you get the most effective learning experience, leaners must be physically able to participate and we limit group size to 12 people. For added reassurance, each learner is assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations, question and answer sessions, quizzes and engaging activities, such as roleplay, designed to coach and support them. 

We recommend that you bring your own lunch, as not all venues have food outlets on site or nearby.

If you are not a newly qualified level two or three early years child carer, our paediatric first aid course may be more suitable. If you don’t need first aid training for work reasons but would like to learn first aid for babies and children, our popular first aid for baby and child course is perfect for new and expectant parents, grandparents and carers.

On successful completion of this course, you will receive an emergency paediatric first aid certificate which is valid for three years.
