Paediatric First Aid

"The trainer was excellent. He gave a really good feel of 'real life' situations. I feel a lot more confident because of this - many thanks."

Course Aims

To train delegates to be able to deal with a paediatric emergency within the workplace.

Suitable For

People who work in nursery, first, infant or primary schools.

Course length

2 days (12 hours)

Pre-requisite

None.

Temporary physical impairment - In situations where employers inform
training providers that an employee attending an FAW / EFAW course has a
temporary physical impairment, it may be sensible to advise them to defer
training until the individual is fit. If this is not possible and the student
has a temporary physical impairment, affecting for example mobility, a training
provider can temporarily accommodate this during training. For example, a knee
injury may prevent CPR training as the person is unable to kneel on the floor,
so the training could be delivered at waist height. If you have any queries do contact us for advice.

Certification

Norvic certificate in Paediatric First Aid - valid for 3 years.
