The HSE stipulated in March 2017 that only those holding a certificate in this course can be counted towards the required number of supervising adults in a childcare 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 to work with children.

This one-day emergency paediatric first aid course has been designed for those who have an interest in child and infant basic life support. If you have a professional interest, i.e. you are a child-minder or schoolteacher etc… then this course partly fulfils the requirements of Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage.
