Level 3 Emergency Paediatric First Aid : 1-day course

This one-day Emergency Paediatric 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 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.

 

Syllabus

A range of subjects are covered including:

  • Responsibilities and reporting
  • Resuscitation
  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
  • Minor injuries
  • Assessment of the situation
  • Epilepsy
  • Wounds and bleeding
  • Anaphylaxis and Shock

 
Certification

This qualification lasts for 3 years. To renew the qualification, learners will need to sit the FAW Re-Qual course. However, it is recommended that during the 3-year period, the learners attend annual refresher courses.

Assessment

Summative practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor each day, along with a written assessment on each day. A three-year Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (Level 6 in Scotland) will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment. No external assessors are required.

Numbers

A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 16 years of age with a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment.
