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 partly 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

The FAA Emergency Paediatric First Aid qualification is unit 1 of the two-day FAA Paediatric First Aid qualification. From gaining this Emergency Paediatric First Aid qualification learners could progress to completing unit 2 and being awarded the 2-day FAA Award in Paediatric First Aid.


A range of subjects is covered including:

  • Choking
  • Wounds, bleeding and shock
