About this course

This 12 hour, Level 3 Paediatric First Aid (PFA) qualification can also be taken as a blended course. Due to corona virus social distancing and limited availability of larger venues, traditional two day classroom course dates are scheduled less frequently than the blended option.

This course includes the latest CPR and Corona virus recommendations. This course meets the latest UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines as per the HSE requirements.

The 12 hour Paediatric First Aid (PFA) course is mandatory for all Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) practitioners and childcare providers wishing to register with Ofsted or working towards an early years educator qualification. This course is recommended for everyone who has sole responsibility for a child from birth onwards.
