This Ofqual regulated two day course satisfies the guidelines and criteria as laid down by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and OFSTED.


Each setting needs to have a named first aider on site at all times when the setting is open.  Settings who work to the Early Years Foundation Stage need to ensure there is a named person who has undertaken Paediatric First Aid training and holds a certificate to demonstrate they have undertaken and successfully completed such training. This will enable them to be the named first aider for the setting.

This course has been developed for those who are working with children and infants. It will be of particular interest to teachers, child minders, crèche assistants, playgroup personnel and anyone else who has a responsibility for their welfare whilst in your care. It is ideal for individuals who are responsible for children and infants, who wish to gain a nationally accredited Level 3 Award.


Reflex First Aid Training Ltd is included in Somerset Centre for Integrated Learning (SCIL) list of approved local authority providers of Paediatric First Aid.


A minimum of 12 hours makes up these two units consisting of theoretical and practical work.


Assessment is ongoing by the instructor in respect of the student’s practical skills and there will be multiple choice question paper to answer in respect of their knowledge. A three year certificate will be issued subject to assessment.


Students must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace for children and infants until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role. The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
