HABC Award Paediatric First Aid Level 3
In a nutshell
The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage means there needs to be at least one person on childcare premises or on outings who has a current paediatric first aid certificate – and this is the qualification you need.
This course is for...
…anyone involved in Early Years childcare.
The qualification provides you with theoretical and practical training in first aid techniques specific to infants under 1 and children aged from 1 year old to the onset of puberty.
You’ll learn about the role of the paediatric first aider and be able to assess and react appropriately to an emergency situation, such as a child or an infant who is unresponsive, has an airway obstruction, has breathing difficulties or is suffering from shock or anaphylaxis.
Other topics covered include fractures, dislocations, injuries to the head, neck, back, eyes, ears or nose, poisoning, bites or stings, burns or scalds, electric shock, minor injuries and chronic medical conditions.
This is usually a 2-day course, and on completion you’ll receive an HABC Paediatric First Aid certificate.
There are no formal entry requirements.
