Paediatric First Aid requalification training
We want to provide you with an update on Paediatric First Aid certificate requalification training: If this training is prevented for reasons associated directly with Covid-19, or by complying with related government advice, the validity of current certificates can be extended to 31 March 2021 at the latest. This applies to certificates expiring on or after 1 October 2020.
This is in recognition of the fact that some practitioners are facing difficulties in accessing requalification training due to courses being cancelled. If asked to do so, providers should be able to explain why the first aider has not been able to requalify and demonstrate what steps have taken to access the training. Employers or certificate holders must do their best to arrange requalification training at the earliest opportunity.
This announcement will affect the following qualifications:
