Course Outcome

Successful candidates of the paediatric first aid course will be awarded a qualification card on completion and will also receive a certificate awarded by WorkSafe. Refresher paediatric first aid certificates will also be awarded upon completion.

Paediatric First Aid Blended Learning

For those delegates who are due for their 3 year refresher training and who are still in date, there is an option to undertake a blended learning Paediatric First Aid course. The advantage of achieving your Paediatric First Aid qualification this way is that it is more time efficient allowing you the delegate to complete part of the re-qualification via home study. A training day is then arranged which focuses on the practical skills  as well as assessment. This can be a very effective way of managing the 3 yearly refresher training.
