We are able to offer 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 and SureStart. Our new blended course offers a video based online course that is completed before attending a full day in the classroom with an instructor to complete the practical part of the course.

This blended course does not replace the 2 day, 12 hour all classroom course, but offers an excellent alternative for those who are simply unable to spare the time to attend 2 days in a classroom only course.

  • Planning for First Aid Emergencies
  • Dealing with emergencies
  • Activating the emergency services and identifying the need to call the EMS
