Free Paediatric First Aid Course – SMARTT North East Ltd was very pleased to be chosen by Durham County Council to offer new learning opportunities for adults.
Our free Paediatric First Aid Training Course meets the Ofsted requirements, and meets the requirements for The National Childminding Association (NCMA), Surestart, Pre-school Learning Alliance (PLA) and Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS ). It is designed for individuals who look after infants and children and is recommended for all individuals whose work involves care of infants and children such as, childminders and staff in nurseries, schools and youth organisations.
Our free paediatric first aid course is also ideal for parents and anyone hoping to begin a career working with children. It teaches individuals how to provide emergency care for children & infants less than a year old. It gives the lay rescuer the confidence and know-how to follow primary and secondary care protocols.
Certification is gained via successful continuous assessment of learners. Those who complete the course and are deemed to have reached the required standard are issues with a certificate valid for three year
