Course Information

Course Overview

Accidental injuries are the most common cause of death in children over one year of age and can result in permanent disability and disfigurement. Because most accidents are preventable knowing what to do if an accident occurs can save a life.

Paediatric First Aid is for those people working in nurseries, schools and child-care settings, but of course it will also be useful for anyone who has responsibility for caring for infants or children.

By developing the knowledge, skills and understanding required to deal with a range of paediatric illnesses and injuries you can help to keep the infants and/or children in your care safe and well.

The national standards for first aid in childcare settings state that ‘at least one person who has a current paediatric first-aid certificate must be on the premises at all times when children are present’. In addition, at least one person with a current paediatric first-aid certificate must accompany every outing.

  • Many thanks Runway training

    I have gained much knowledge from this course. It is the first time I have accessed training virtually and everything was easy to follow with clear instructions for which questionnaire to complete, video to watch or attachments to read. In particularly I found the personality traits and what motivates others and may demotivate another. I will take this learning with me onto the next stage of my career.

  • Thanks for your support during my apprenticeship.

    I will like to show a big appreciation to Zoe Harrison for her support during my apprenticeship to guide me to get not only to pass but to achieve a distinction. She has been very dedicated and supportive during the time that I have known her whilst on the apprenticeship. Zoe has been a source of encouragement to me during times when I questioned whether the apprenticeship was for me and considered dropping out. I just wanted you to know that I believe that Zoe is extremely competent as an apprentice tutor and knows her craft. I believe that she is a valued asset to your organisation and under her guidance many apprentices will succeed. Many thanks

  • I had a fantastic learning experience

    I would like to say that I had a fantastic learning experience with the company, I found you very professional at all times, great communication throughout and very supportive. The on-line maths formative assessments where very good and helped me be successful. You were able to get me through the exam in time and I was pleased to receive my certificate when I returned from our holiday, so well done I would certainly recommend you to others.
