First Aid for Infants and Children – FA07
Our first aid for infants and children course is aimed at staff, such as teachers, teaching assistants, school meal supervisors, learning support workers and nursery staff, where first aid may need to be administered to children or infants but the full Level 3 award in paediatric first aid is not required.
“After completing my Level 3 Paediatric First Aid qualification, I now have the knowledge and confidence to completely carry out first aid. Matt made First Aid fun – who thought that was possible! – and I liked that all learning styles were covered for, like visual, practical and written.”
