TQUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) - Blended Part 2 (PFA)


TQUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) Blended Part 2 for those who have completed the online part.  We are the only company to be able to offer an alternative to the 2 days in the classroom for childminders and carers who need to complete a Paediatric First Aid Course to comply with the requirements of Ofsted, EYFS, CSSIW and SureStart. Our blended course offers a video-based online course that is completed before attending a full day in the classroom with an instructor to complete the practical part of the course. ProTrainings Paediatric courses are approved by most councils across the UK.

This course offers an excellent alternative for those who are simply unable to spare the time to attend 2 days in a classroom only course. When you have successfully completed both the online and classroom modules, you will be issued a ProTrainings wall certificate and wallet card.

All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements.

Please note that learners undertaking a ProTrainings Trainings Course have the option to choose to take a regulated qualification.

Please be advised that the classroom course has a minimum age requirement of 14.

This is the classroom-only part 2 of a 2-part blended course. Before taking this course, you MUST complete the online course.

This course gives learners the opportunity to gain a formally recognised regulated qualification. If you require funding, a regulated qualification is often required. Phone us and we can advise if needed. If you choose our course leading to a regulated qualification, there are additional assessment criteria to be undertaken with an instructor and a small extra certification charge.
