Combined First Aid at Work & Paediatric First Aid blended course

Combined First Aid at Work & Paediatric First Aid Course – Blended  (33% online + 67% classroom)

This course combines both the First Aid at Work and EYFS (full) Paediatric First Aid courses into one course.  It is taken in two parts; an e-Learning component and then a two day tutor-led classroom based component.  The e-Learning component can be stopped and re-started, so does not have to be sat in one session, but must be completed before the tutor-led classroom day!

Delegates receive two certificates from this course:

  • A First Aid at Work certificate which complies with the current Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981
  • A Paediatric First Aid certificate as detailed in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and is therefore the qualification accepted by OFSTED when inspecting registered childcare settings

Who should attend

  • Those who work in a childcare organisation who need to comply with the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 for staff first aid and who also need to comply with the Early Years Foundation Stage requirement for paediatric first aiders
