paediatric first aid training

Paediatric First Aid is First aid for infants and children and differs in many ways from first aid performed on adults. While there is some cross over dealing with an infant is more complex and does require specific training. Rosecroft Health and Safety provide Ofqual regulated paediatric First Aid qualifications which meet in part (1-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid) or in full (2-day Paediatric First Aid) the guidelines and criteria as laid down by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Ofsted. We also deliver courses for groups including parents, grandparents and informal childcarers who don’t need a First Aid qualification but want the knowledge and skills to respond in a potentially live saving, emergency situation. First Aid really does save lives.
