Who is this for?
This qualification is aimed at those working in an early years setting who require a paediatric first aid qualification to meet the early years foundation stage requirements.
The QNUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First aid (RQF) is seen as the most common qualification for early years practitioners and is delivered over 2 days.
This course is the blended way of completing the qualification. For the more traditional 2 days training click here.
How ‘blended learning’ works
Learners will complete 6 hours online training before attending 6 hours of face to face training. In order to complete the qualification this way, all online training must be completed before attending the practical day. This will be confirmed on arrival to the training venue. Learners will have a maximum of 10 weeks to complete online elements.
The online element does not need to be completed in one session. You have the flexibility to learn parts of the course at your own pace. If you are unsure or have a question please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We can deliver this course at your venue at a time to suit you. Fill in the details below and we’ll contact you to discuss.

In October 2013, the way in which first aid courses were approved changed. This means that employers are now legally responsible for completing due diligence on any training provider they use.
There are two routes to doing this:
- Regulated Training Choosing a training provider who offers Ofqual certification on their courses. The HSE state that you do not need to go through their checklist as the training provider offers Ofqual regulated qualifications and thus the training provider has already completed the due diligence for you.
- Non Regulated Training
It is the legal responsibility of the employer to carry out due diligence on the training company, the trainer and the course. Click here to see the HSE’s checklist
