The number of training days required to achieve both qualifications has been minimised and streamlined to avoid the duplication of topics associated with attending both the First Aid at Work and
Paediatric First Aid courses separately.
What’s more, this course is formed from two regulated qualifications, which employers can book for their employees and be assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training, without having to undertake any lengthy due diligence checks.

During the 22 hours of training, you will sit two multiple choice examination papers to confirm your learning and gain the accredited certificates which are valid for three years.

This qualification is valid for 3 years. Learners must be at least 14 years old on the first day of the training.
