From 1 September 2016, newly qualified EYFS staff (with full and relevant level 2 or level 3 childcare qualification) must also hold a current Paediatric First Aid (PFA) or emergency PFA certificate in order to be included in the required staff: child ratios in an early years setting.

(Childcare providers will be allowed a three month ‘grace’ period to complete PFA training after starting work with a new employer.)

The NDTSA are therefore pleased to offer an accredited 2 day paediatric First Aid training course.

This course will provide delegates with the individual with a sound knowledge and understanding of all first aid procedures that you could be called upon when working with children and babies. It will also provide delegates with the ability to recognise and treat many childhood conditions and illnesses.  This course is valid for 3 years.  All candidates who participate to the required level will receive a certificate of attendance.
