Paediatric First Aid refers to first aid practices for treatment of children and infants. Professionals involved with childcare in different capacities such as nannies, staff members of nurseries can benefit a lot by Paediatric First Aid training. These training programs help in handling injured or sick children and infants.

Professionals required to supervise infants or children should opt for the Paediatric First Aid Level 3 course. Dealing with different types of emergencies effectively is a natural expectation from such professionals and this course will make you capable of providing effective first aid.

Once you have accessed your course for the first time, you have 2 year to complete it.

The law does not specify the validity of a first aid course; however, it is recommended that the training is provided every year as a refresher course.

This is an online course and does not replace the face-to-face training requirements. However, it can be taken as an annual refresher course during the 3-year interval period between practical training. It can also be used to complete the knowledge requirement of the practical training.

HSE does not approve any First Aid course. However, our course does meet the requirements set by the HSE.

Our e-learning is available to use on tablets, PCs, and laptops. All you need is a stable internet connection.

The law does not specify an exact number. However, a risk assessment should be carried out to determine the likelihood of health emergencies. For a high-risk environment, it is recommended to have 1 first aider for every 50 employees. If there is a change in ergonomics, the risk assessment should be updated.

It is highly unlikely that legal action will be taken against a first aider given he or she was following best practice and had had the right training. However, you should check with your company’s insurance providers whether they cover first-aiders’ liability in the insurance policy.


A learning management system or LMS is a software application for the administration, tracking, reporting, automation, and delivery of learning content. It is the system that learners will log into, to access their courses, and administrators will use to manage their learners.

The Tutorak LMS has been created with the needs of a business in mind; it reduces the time and effort required to administer training and features detailed reports on training progress. We have worked in partnership with many businesses and organisations and have gained a unique understanding of the challenges they face while delivering training to a workforce. This has allowed us to create a flexible system which can be modified according to the needs of your company.

When you purchase a course, you receive two emails, a payment receipt and login credentials to access the LMS. You can click on the link provided in the email to go to the login page and enter the provided details to log in to your account.

For the purchase of a single course license, you will be given details to access a learner account, where you can take your course directly. Any purchases above a single course license will automatically generate details for an administrator account for you to manage the learners that will be taking the course.
