Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (RQF)
The purpose of the qualification is for learners to attain the knowledge and practical competences required to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations.
It is designed more for staff with incidental contact with children in their care and may be recommended for admin staff, governors and so on.
Although covering much of the content of the 2 day course, it does so in less detail.
The certificate issued on a successful pass is valid for 3 years, after which the learner must re-qualify by completing the course again.
Successful completion of this course could lead to a learner moving on to taking and successfully completing a further course - perhaps a longer more in depth course to help their personal development and ambitions.
