What does this event cover
This is a 12 hour paediatric first aid course that will take place over two days.   As required by the EYFS safeguarding and welfare requirements, settings need to ensure that at least one member of staff with a current first aid certificate is present on the premises or on outings at any one time.

The course will focus on:
- problems of the respiratory system
- problems of the circulatory system
- problems of the nervous system
- miscellaneous problems.

In order to ensure a fair allocation of places, only two places per setting will be given in the first instance, with additional places being
allocated on a first come first served basis.

Important information:

Please bring photo ID, and inform the instructor if you have any serious health/ allergy issues. 

Full attendance is required so candidates should arrive early, lateness can mean exclusion from the course/assessments. Leaving the room during the course to attend to other matters may lead to non-certification.

CPR, Recovery position, and Control of Severe Bleeding assessments require floor work and kneeling, so all candidates should wear loose fitting trousers, and appropriate footwear. Please carry out a personal risk assessment for the practical activities on the course to ensure that you are able to carry out the activities required for the training. i.e. Are you able to get down on the floor to assess the patient? Are you well enough yourself to administer first aid? Are you able to kneel down and get up again unaided?

Using phones during the course (other than for emergencies) may result in non-certification or being asked to leave the course.

There are 3 breaks during the day. The lunch period is usually 30 minutes. Please make arrangements so you can be in full attendance
Please note

You will have to take part in both sessions in order to receive your certificate

A personal risk assessment needs to be carried out for the practical activities on the course to ensure that you are able to carry out the activities required for the training
