Paediatric first aid

Paediatric first aid

If you work with children, a paediatric first aid training course can be of vital importance. At MJ Training, our course will help you meet all the situations that may arise in an early years setting. We also cover Adult CPR and Choking procedures, so you can also cover your other workplace requirements with one course. What’s more, it also meets industry standards, satisfying the requirements of Ofsted for anyone working with children below the age of 5 and is therefore a must for nurseries, pre-schools and childminders. We cover a broad range of topics in the course, and will make sure that you can handle an emergency first aid situation until paramedics arrive. 

It is a statutory requirement for childcare providers to have the appropriate paediatric first aid provision.

We provide both the one and two day paediatric first aid course each month on our open courses in Lowestoft, Suffolk. For more information on forthcoming dates or to book a course for your business on your own premises, either email us at info@mjtrainme.co.uk or call us on 01502 560779.

Emergency paediatric first aid

If you are a nanny or a baby sitter working with children, the emergency paediatric care training course offered by MJ Training is ideal. It will enable you to administer emergency first aid for babies and children. Although it does not meet Ofsted requirements, this course satisfies the requirements for gaining the ‘Millies Mark’. This quality mark, if being applied for by nurseries, pre-schools etc, requires all staff working with children to have at least a one day Emergency Paediatric First Aid Certificate, with the correct number of 2 day Paediatric First Aiders still required as well.  Also all new staff working towards their childcare qualification require at least this one day Emergency Paediatric First Aid Certificate within 2 months of starting their placement. 

We also provide ongoing support for all our courses for the lifetime of the certificate. We also provide renewal reminders, a revision service as well as the option to call us 24/7 for support following any administering of first aid.

We offer one and two day paediatric first aid courses each month. To find out more information on the forthcoming dates or to book a course, either email us on info@mjtrainme.co.uk or call on 01502 560 779.
