What You'll Learn

Participants will learn how to respond to a variety of paediatric emergencies. The course covers essential topics such as CPR for children and infants, choking, asthma, allergic reactions, burns, and head injuries. Additionally, you’ll gain knowledge on how to manage illnesses and conditions specific to children and how to accurately report and record incidents.

Course Duration

The Level 3 Paediatric First Aid Course is conducted over two days. The first day is dedicated to e-learning, allowing participants to gain theoretical knowledge at their own pace. The second day focuses on practical training, providing hands-on experience under the guidance of our expert trainers.

The course assessment is carried out in two parts, aligning with the course structure. The e-learning component includes knowledge checks throughout, while the practical day involves continuous observation by the trainer.
