About this training
Would you know what to do if you saw an infant or child in need of first aid?
Having a good understanding of emergency paediatric first aid is incredibly important for the safety of children and it could mean the difference between life and death.
The QA Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (RQF)qualification has been designed in-line with the current Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) requirements and is ideal for:
- Those who have gained a level 2 or 3 childcare qualification and have entered into an early years setting and wish to be included in the staff to child ratios to comply with the EYFS requirements.
- Anyone who cares for infants and children, such as parents, guardians, grandparents or those who have an involvement with infants and children and want to learn key paediatric first aid skills.
Successful candidates will learn the roles and responsibilities of the emergency paediatric first aider, and will be equipped with the skills needed to deal with a range of paediatric first aid situations, such as performing CPR and controlling external bleeding.
Newly qualified entrants to an early years setting who have completed a level 2 and/or level 3 qualification on or after 30th June 2016, must also have either a full paediatric first aid or an emergency paediatric first aid certificate within three months of starting work

Training at our centre
Book online today and we'll send you a confirmation email. An information form for you to complete and full details and joining instructions will be sent to you a week before the course starts.
Training on location
Please send us a training enquiry via our simple form and we'll get in touch. We keep everything simple and will let you know the process. We'll send you full joining instructions at least a week before the course.
Do I need to bring anything?
At our place, we have light refreshments (usually fruit, biscuits and hot/cold drinks), but please bring your own lunch. Photo ID will be required on the day.
Anything else I need to know?
You don't usually need any first aid experience or prior knowledge to join, (except for revalidation and refresher courses). You will need to be able to communicate, including reading, writing and speaking in English. In order to gain the qualification, you will need to demonstrate providing first aid, which will require you to be able to move around, including kneeling on the floor.
Training at our centre
We understand that sometimes plans change, so we'll move your booking to another of our courses - completely free! Please just give us at least a week (7 days) notice. If you don't give us 7 days notice, we reserve the right to refuse to change your course.
If you'd like to cancel your place on any of our courses, you need to give us at least 7 days notice and we'll provide a refund*. If you don't give seven days notice, or in the case of a no-show, you will not be entitled to any refund.
On the flip side, we usually need at least 6 participants in order to guarantee a course will run - any less and you don't get the full experience. If the course doesn't have enough people to run, we'll tell you a week before and move you onto our next course. If that doesn't work for you, then just tell us and we'll move your booking to any other of our courses or give you a refund.
*in the case of cancellation, we'll provide a full refund minus an administration fee of £14 per place cancelled.
Training on location
If you need to cancel or move the course for any reason, we'll do so, for free if you give us at least 7 days notice. In the event you're unable to give 7 days notice, we reserve the right to refuse to move or cancel the course.
Our fees for on location training are flat. We charge the same regardless of the number of people (up to the max) who join. In the event that someone who was booked onto the course doesn't attend, we won't provide a refund for that person.
Sometimes we like to take photos and or videos of our courses being run for publicity purposes. If this applies to your course, we'll let you know and give you the opportunity to opt-out. On occasion, we might need to take photos or videos to use as evidence in line with our quality assurance processes. These are for the purposes of quality assurance and ensuring integrity of what we're teaching. If your course is affected, we'll tell you before we start recording. Any photographs or video footage taken (for any reason) becomes property of EAS Medical. If you'd like to take your own photos or videos, please talk to your trainer first.
Please note: photographs and videos must not be taken of any Powerpoint slides or assessment materials.
We want you to succeed and we're going to do everything possible to ensure everyone has ability to succeed with us. However, you must be able to satisfy the requirements of assessment in order to pass the course.
This might include:
reading, writing and speaking in English
carrying out CPR with two hands
laying on the floor (and getting up again)
being able to use a telephone
If you think you'll struggle with any of these things, please contact us before the course and we'll talk about what help we can provide. If you're unable to meet all of the requirements, we'll provide you with an EAS certificate to show you attended the course, but did not meet the requirements of the qualification.
