Combined Emergency Paediatric and Workplace First Aid – Maidstone, Kent

The syllabus for the combined Emergency Paediatric First Aid (EPFA) and Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course is aimed at allowing staff to dual qualify in just one day’s training rather than having to take 2 full days away from work as would normally be the case.

Combining both courses offers a considerable saving in both staff time, having to arrange cover for absent colleagues and is a great deal cheaper than having to pay for two courses.

This course is regulated by Ofqual and can help you meet your Health & Safety requirements for both children and adults.

It should be noted that the Early Years Framework states that all those who will be left in sole charge of a child or children require a full 2-day Paediatric First Aid certificate.

Course Information

Duration

The combined EPFA/EFAW course requires 7 hours of contact time (plus breaks) and is normally taught over one day although it can be split into two ½ days sessions (and must be within 3 weeks of each other) for an additional charge. We full recognise that freeing up sufficient staff to attend this course during the week so are happy to teach this at weekends at your premises.

Assessment

Assessment is in the form of practical exercises and a straightforward multiple choice paper, and candidates must pass both elements to qualify.

Please note that candidates must be able to perform exercises at floor level where required. It is a requirement of all regulated courses that the candidate should be able to communicate effectively with Emergency Services and, although this is not assessed formally, your instructor must be satisfied that this is the case. As such, all the question papers are in English and a reader will be provided if candidates have literacy concerns or learning difficulties.

Certification 

Once qualified, candidates will receive two certificates which are each valid for 3 years at the end of which both qualifications will need to be renewed on another 1-day course.

Both Ofsted & the Health & Safety Executive recommend that all First Aiders should undertake an annual refresher course to keep their skills up to date.
