Last week I wrote about the Safe and Sound Blended Paediatric First Aid Course which included an eLearning module and many nannies and child minders emailed to ask what exactly is included in the eLearning module, what would they do if they didn’t have a computer, and  how could they access it.


The answers to all of the above  is below:


The Blended paediatric first aid course is in 2 parts.  Part 1 involves the interactive eLearning module and can be done any time before you attend the face to face training.  You will be sent a link to the eLearning module when you book on the course. Part 2 is a one day face to face course where you will learn and demonstrate all the practical sections of the course.

The eLearning module is fully compatible with all mobile devices so you can use your mobile phone or iPad  –  don’t worry if you don’t have a computer.  It is designed to give you the theoretical knowledge that you will need before you attend the practical first aid course so that you comply with the Ofsted requirements for a 12 hour paediatric first aid course. You will be able to stop and start as often as you like and on completion you can either print your certificate or show it to the trainer on your mobile device.

It is an interactive module that includes video and self checks and it is easy to follow, interesting and very informative.


The eLearning needs to be completed prior to the day of training so that learners are fully prepared for the practical side of the course. Child cares tell us that it really helped them to focus on the face to face training day.


“I was not looking forward to the eLearning as I am not that good on the computer but I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed doing it.  I learnt a lot and when I got to the course at Euston I really did feel that I already had a lot of information. Great course both the eLearning and the training day.”

This is an excellent way for child carers and parents to complete the required first aid training at their own time and pace. It is also very helpful for those with English as a Second Language as it will help you prepare your vocabulary and language skills for the practical side of the course.
