Emergency Paediatric First Aid Training

Course Overview

Emergency Paediatric First Aid training is in accordance with the latest OFSTED and HSE guidelines and should be taken by anyone who may need to administer lifesaving first aid to an infant or baby.

This Emergency Paediatric First Aid training gives you the knowledge and skills to provide emergency first aid to infants and babies when they get injured.

We use an audio and visual presentation and training can count towards your CPD. You will be issued with a course certificate after the successful completion of your training.

Emergency Paediatric First Aid training covers the following:

  • applying first aid to a child who is choking or suffering from shock
  • assessing the circumstances to act safely and effectively in an emergency
  • giving appropriate first aid to a child who is unconscious, wounded and bleeding
  • performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if a child has stopped breathing or their heart has stopped beating
  • providing care for minor injuries such as small cuts, grazes, bruises, and minor burns
  • recording incidents and actions
  • use of available equipment such as defibrillators and tourniquets


Delegates attending this course should be 18+ years and be physically and mentally fit to withstand the rigours of training.

The content of this course includes awareness of periodic examinations of equipment.

What the Department of Education say:

Consultation on amendments to the paediatric first aid requirements in the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) ran from 15 October to 10 December 2015. The consultation proposed to make it a requirement, in addition to existing EYFS requirements, that newly qualified early years staff (with a full and relevant level 2 or level 3 childcare qualification) must have either a full paediatric first aid (PFA) or an emergency PFA certificate before they can be included in the required adult: child ratios in an early years setting. These requirements would be in addition to the introduction of Millie’s Mark, the voluntary quality award scheme to be introduced in the summer of 2016. You can read the full outcome here.
