Code: BH/22/0252 Paediatric First Aid (2 days) (EVENT FULL)

This qualification is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to prepare the learner to develop the skills and knowledge needed to provide effective first aid to children and infants.

It is mandatory for those working with children from birth to five years. It is also suitable for those working with children from birth to puberty, including foster carers, schools and CVS practitioners.

Assessment
There are seven Practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course. There are two Theory assessment/multiple choice question papers. The pass mark is 11 out of 15 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 qualification. 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.

Re-Certification
This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full two day/twelve hour Paediatric First Aid course.
