EMERGENCY PAEDIATRIC FIRST AID
As of March 2017, the HSE now stipulates that only those holding a certificate in this course can be counted towards the required number of supervising adults in a child care setting. This means that basic first aid, basic paediatric first aid, emergency first aid and first aid at work certificate holders no longer contribute towards this and these first aiders must update their certification in order to work with children. To find out exactly how many registered first aiders you need, please call us today and we will be happy to help.

How is the course delivered?
Our training is available both in-house and as open courses. Our open courses are great for individual delegates, but if you have a group of people that need training, our in-house courses will be a much more cost-effective option for you… and you won’t even need to travel!
