This one-day Paediatric Emergency First Aid course has been designed for those who have an interest 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 fulfils partly the requirements of OFSTED and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
In order to obtain the full qualification, you must attend both days and complete the two units of accreditation which includes this one and J/600/2037 – Managing paediatric illness and injury.
A minimum of six hours makes up this unit consisting of theoretical and practical work, plus some pre-course activity could be required.
A range of subjects are covered including:
• Responsibilities and reporting • Resuscitation • Shock • Assessment of the situation • Minor injuries • Epilepsy • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty • Anaphylaxis • Wounds and bleeding
Assessment is ongoing by the instructor in respect of the student’s practical ability, along with a multiple choice question paper.
A Unit accreditation certificate lasting three years will be issued, subject to assessment.
A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course.
Students must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment.
A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace for children and infants until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.
The certificate will expire as dated on the certifi cate, irrespective of age.
We are on Lincolnshire’s Birth to Five register, and Peterborough’s Early Years register as an approved provider for this course.
