Blended Paediatric First Aid

Course Introduction

This course is an alternative to the 2 days in the classroom for childminders and carers who need to complete a Paediatric First Aid Course to comply with the requirements of Ofsted, EYFS and SureStart.

Our blended course offers a video based online course that is completed in your own time, before attending a full day in the classroom with an instructor to complete the practical part of the course. ProTrainings Paediatric courses are approved by most councils across the UK.

This course offers an excellent alternative for those who are simply unable to spare the time to attend 2 days in a classroom only course. When you have successfully completed both the online and classroom modules, you will be issued a ProTrainings wall certificate and wallet card.

Please use our register interest button, as this course requires a minimum of 4 candidates to run, thank you.
