What is a Blended Paediatric First Aid Course?

Safe and Sound have developed an excellent interactive elearning module to work alongside its face to face paediatric first aid course. It is an excellent alternative to the 2 day paediatric first aid course and it is suitable for anyone who works with young children. It is a comprehensive course in two parts for professional child carers including nannies, au pairs, pre-school, nursery and reception year teachers and childminders caring for children under 8.

The course content meets Ofsted and Scottish requirements for first aid training in Early Years settings.

The Blended Paediatric First Aid Course comes in 2 parts:

Part 1 involves completing our 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 this course.

Part 2 is a one day face to face course where you will learn and demonstrate all the practical sections of the course

Subjects covered include:

  • Role of a first aider, accident reporting and the first aid box
  • Action planning in an emergency
  • Unconscious baby or child
  • Infant, child and adult resuscitation (CPR )
