This qualification is for those that require additional training in basic life support and management of anaphylaxis. Many attendees are those working in environments that support children that may be at risk of severe allergic reactions, for example those working in nurseries and other early years settings.
The qualification has also been designed as the perfect add-on to standard first aid courses such as the QNUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First aid (RQF). Where this qualification is combined with another first aid course, the guided learning hours can be reduced, due to the range of similar subjects.
This course is delivered over half a day as a face to face course.
Upon commencing this qualification learners should be a minimum of 14 years in order to undertake this qualification. Learners must demonstrate first aid procedures as part of their assessment, including providing CPR to a casualty on the floor. Therefore, learners must be physically capable of performing CPR on the floor.
This course covers a range of content including:
- Assessment of an Incident
- Unresponsive Casualties
- Severe allergic reactions
For this course learners are required to undertake a number of practical observations which must be passed in order to complete the course.
Certificate and Validity
Upon completion of the course including the submission and approval by QNUK of the relevant course paperwork, candidates will receive a certificate which is valid for a period of one year.
