Learners will become familiar with the role of the paediatric first-aider and be able to assess and react appropriately to an emergency situation, such as a child or an infant who is unresponsive, has an airway obstruction, has breathing difficulties or is suffering from shock. 

The qualification is valid for a period of 3 years, after which point learners will need to retake the course. In addition to this it is recommended that learners refresh their knowledge annually. 

Entry requirements Learners are required to be 16 years of age prior to certification. It is also advised that learners have a minimum of level 1 in literacy to enable them to complete the assessment.

1] Practical observation 

The practical assessment is completed throughout the course delivery. This ongoing assessment requires learners to demonstrate practical first aid skills. The practical assessment will be recorded using the practical matrix within the Instructors Assessment Pack. 

2] Centre-marked multiple-choice theory assessment 

Learners are required to answer a series of questions contained within theory question papers. Oral questioning may be used. In this case, the assessor should document the responses within the assessment pack.
