Paediatric First Aid Blended Learning

Course
This full Paediatric First Aid (PFA) Blended course which includes 12 hours of study and is provided through a blended learning offer combining 6 hours of online study followed by a 6 hour face-to-face training course.

The course is suitable for those working in registered Early Years provision and anybody working with children from birth to 8 years. At least one person who has a current Paediatric First Aid (PFA) certificate must be on the premises and available at all times when children are present, and must accompany children on outings.

All newly qualified entrants to the Early Years workforce who have completed a level 2 and/or level 3 qualification on or after 30th June 2016, must also have either a full PFA or an emergency PFA certificate within three months of starting work.

It is fully compliant with OFSTED and the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage 2017) guidelines and is Accredited by the First Aid Industry Body (FAIB). This Full Paediatric First Aid Qualification is valid for 3 years at which point the certificate must be renewed.

The training includes an assessment of competence and leads to the award of a certificate upon successful completion.

Providers should consider whether paediatric first aiders need to undertake annual refresher training, during any three year certification period to help maintain basic skills and keep up to date with any changes to PFA procedures. We offer the Emergency Paediatric First Aid qualification that might be suitable for providers who wish to do an annual refresher.
