What is CPD?
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and is used to describe the learning activities one might complete, to develop and enhance their professional abilities. It relates to a process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally or self directed, as you work, beyond any initial training. You may have an industry specific requirement relating to skill and competence. to complete a certain number of CPD hours every year.
Depending on your specific sports governing body, risk assessment, and qualified first aiders currently in your setting, it is your responsibility to ensure programme is suffice.
If you are part of a national governing body in sport such as the Lawn Tennis Association, a level 3 EFAW (Emergency First Aid at Work) course may be required. We recommend you contact Sport England, your sport’s national governing body or professional sporting associations for your specific industry sector first aid requirements.
Where you require classroom a first aid certification urgently, please book onto one of our nationally recognised level 3 EFAW classroom courses here. If you work with children or infants (babies) in any capacity, you must take a level 3 practical face to face Emergency Paediatric 6 hour (EPFA) or Paediatric 12 hour (PFA) course.
If you have sole charge of children or work for an Ofsted registered club or facility and do not have a fully qualified PFA or FAW First Aider on site, you will need to take our emergency paediatric first aid 6 hour course (EPFA) or the full 12 hour paediatric first aid course (PFA) Visit our first aid for childcare providers page to learn more.
