Outline of the Emergency First Aid in Schools Course


4 - 6 Hours depending on skills and knowledge required (Needs to be 6 hours if you want the HSE compliant certificate)

This is an extremely useful course for schools and colleges. Participants will become proficient at life saving techniques and everyday emergency first aid scenarios. This course exceeds the recommendations laid down in the Government Document ´Guidance for First Aid in Schools´ when accompanying children on school trips etc. Remember from 1st September 2008 schools will need at least one 12hr Paediatric First Aider at all times at school or on trips where the children are five years or younger (EYFS Statutory framework).
