Emergency Paediatric First Aid Level 3
Emergency Paediatric First Aid Level 3
The guidelines relating to paediatric first aid are different to those for adults. The Emergency Paediatric First Aid Level 3 course specifically addresses first aid techniques for children of different ages, and is ideal for people working in schools and nurseries and for parents.
Who should attend?
Anyone responsible for looking after children’s welfare, including:
• Classroom assistants/playgroup assistants.
• Nannies and child minders.
• General school staff.
• Sports coaches.
The Emergency Paediatric First Aid Level 3 course is specifically designed for those with a responsibility for children. The most important difference between child and adult first aid is the technique used for resuscitation (airway, breathing and circulation) according to the Resuscitation Council (UK). The course also takes into account the common illnesses and injuries that can occur with children.

No previous experience or qualifications are necessary. You must be able to kneel & bend down throughout the course to perform first aid techniques and for the final practical assessments.
How the qualification is assessed:
The course is run at our fully equipped training room over 1 day. The qualification is assessed through both practical observation and oral questioning through the duration of the course by one of our trainers. Learners must be able to practically demonstrate the application of the correct techniques that have been taught.
The practical assessment of learners for the qualification is completed throughout the course delivery. This ongoing assessment will involve learners demonstrating practical first aid skills across a number of areas.
Learners are required to answer a series of questions ensuring their understanding of the theory content is sufficient to meet the required standard. Oral questioning can be used to extract further information for these questions during the practical assessments, with the tutor documenting the responses, or when needing to supplement learners’ written responses, according to individual learners’ needs.
On successful completion of the course, the delegate will receive a Emergency Paediatric First Aid Level 3 certificate valid for 3 years and a plastic credit card sized card detailing their qualification.
