Paediatric & Outdoor First Aid (POFA) qualification (16hrs), Guildford, Pucks Oak Barn, Thursday, 12. November 2020
About this Event
This 2 day (16hr) qualification indicates an individual can undertake the role of Outdoor First Aider in more rural and remote areas where professional emergency assistance maybe more than 10 minutes away and that training has had a specific focus on Paediatric Care. The need for an Outdoor First Aider might have been identified by a workplace first aid needs assessment and can be relied upon by employers to satsify the due diligence requirements of the HSE for first aid training providers. The qualification will benefit all who specifically work with young people in the EYFS setting and need to be introduced to emergency first aid action in the outdoors and outdoor first aid incident management. The qualification will also benefit those who require re-qualification training in Outdoor First Aid. Successful completion of the course will result in knowledge and skills that have been identified by the Institute for Outdoor Learning for the safe, effective and prompt treatment of injuries and illness, with the management of incidents in the outdoors.
