The Paediatric First Aid certificate states that you have completed the Paediatric First Aid Course covering the topics specified by Ofsted and fulfilling Ofsted requirements for Child Carers. This is the certification required to register with Ofsted. Our Blended learning (6 hours online through onlinefirstaid.com and 6 hours practical) enables us to award the 12 hours Early Years or Paediatric First Aid Certificate as specified by Ofsted for those looking to register on the compulsory Ofsted Register.

In addition to our practical courses, we offer Online and blended First Aid courses through our sister company, www.onlinefirstaid.com where you can learn vital skills and extend your first aid knowledge from your smart phone and mobile devices in your own time. These courses fulfil the requirements for those needing the Appointed Person qualification or serve as an Annual First Aid Refresher as recommended through the HSE. The blended learning allows you to complete online learning at your own time and pace and then be assessed on the practical elements by one of our trainers.
The online learning is written in simple English and is ideal pre-learning for people with English as a Second Language to give them the language skills necessary for the accredited courses.

Why choose First Aid for Life, and not Red Cross training or St Johns Ambulance?
Our courses are extremely practical and held in small groups so that everyone can receive individual attention to ensure you feel confident coping with a medical emergency. We have ample manikins and practical resources available, so you won’t be waiting around for others to finish and we are happy to teach adult, baby and child first aid on any of the courses.
All our courses comply with the very latest Resuscitation Council Guidelines. Our EFAW courses include more content than other First Aid Training businesses as we cover Head and Spinal Injuries, Heart Attacks, use of a Defibrillator, Asthma and breaks and sprains in addition to the full HSE syllabus.
The course content will be tailored to your needs, so that you leave equipped with the knowledge and skills to deal with situations that particularly concern you. We are happy to cover adult, baby and child First Aid on any of our courses. We are also able to offer online and blended learning options through our sister company onlinefirstaid.com
First Aid for Life is fully regulated through Qualsafe Awards, Ofqual and the QCF framework and your non regulated certificates will be awarded on the day and accredited certificates will be with you within a week of the course.
