Paediatric first aid training is required by many working with children. This 12 hour course is designed for people who have responsibility for children within their work duties. Updated to reflect both the latest medical practice but also the current guidance from EYFS and OFSTED, this course is essential for childminders and those working in early years settings.
Want to hear what people who have attended the training think? Lazarus Training has started to interview [willing] delegates on our courses to let you know more about how we run our paediatric first aid courses.
