Combined First Aid at Work & Paediatric First Aid Level 3 Award (3 days)
Combining the QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work & Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid into three days, this course provides learners with the knowledge and practical competencies needed to deal with a range of first aid situations and/or take on the role of First Aider in the workplace and when looking after children.
The course covers both the First Aid at Work and Paediatric First Aid syllabuses and is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic first aid to people in a range of first aid situations and to provide first aid to infants and children.
On passing the course, the learner will be issued with a First Aid at Work certificate and a Paediatric First Aid certificate, valid for 3 years.
Assessment: There are nine Practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course.
There are two theory assessment/multiple choice question papers. The pass mark is 14 out of 40 for Unit 1 and 18 out of 25 for Unit 2.
In addition, the trainer will carry out on-going assessment to assess the learners’ knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.
To assess competence and gain certification, the learner will need to demonstrate, without assistance from a third party, practical tasks such as CPR with the casualty on the floor to simulate a real-life situation. If the learner is unable to carry out this practical assessment, for example because they cannot kneel, then they will not pass the course and will not gain the qualified. In exceptional circumstances, learners who are not able to kneel may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.
Each learner is provided with a course manual.
The programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 outbreak and infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are detailed below in the additional information. Please ensure these are read and understood before applying and attending the programme. Delegates can also request a full copy of the risk assessments that cover this training course.
