1 day Intensive Paediatric Syllabus
It may be possible for child carers to undertake an intensive course in less than 12 hours. However, the child carer must ensure that the course covers all of the criteria specified below and that they receive adequate practical training. It is not recommend to complete this course if you have never completed a Paediatric course before because the content is covered very quickly.
This course meets the requirements laid down by Ofsted, and EYFS. It will be of particular interest to teachers, childminders, crèche assistants, playgroup personnel and anyone else who has a responsibility for their welfare whilst in your care.
This course can be taught as a Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF)
Duration: This course covers at least 7 hours of training and is usually run over 1 day.
The training is always the same regardless of the certificate you choose. Both certificate options include a First Aid Manual and a First Aid training pack
