ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS COURSE
Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid
This one-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid course has been designed for those interested 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 partially fulfils the requirements of Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage require you to have 12 hours of paediatric first aid training, so the 2-Day Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid would be required to fulfil their requirements. This 6 hour qualification also makes up the first half of the 12-hour course and mainly covers the catastrophic/ serious First Aid procedures within an ‘Emergency’ relating to children.

Did you know?
- ‘A blocked airway can kill someone in three to four minutes, but it can take more than eight minutes for an ambulance to arrive.’
- ‘New research shows just 5% of adults have the skills and confidence to provide first aid in emergency situations.’
- ‘59% of deaths from injuries would have been preventable had first aid been given before the emergency services arrived.’
- In the UK fewer than 10% of all the people in whom a resuscitation attempt is made outside hospital survive.
- ‘With no compressions, the 90% confidence of successful defibrillation is reached at 6 minutes and the median time limit for success is 9.5 minutes. However, with pre-shock chest compressions, the modeled data suggest a 90% success rate at 10 minutes and a 50% rate at 14 minutes.’
- ‘We estimate that about 1,700 lives are saved in the UK per year by bystanders using an AED.’
- ‘Nearly 45 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims survived when bystander CPR was administered.’
