With IBA UK, your paediatric first-aid training is delivered through a combination of instruction in the relevant theory and hands-on practice. All the principles are clearly explained by our expert trainers, giving you the confidence to cope with most situations you’re likely to encounter.

To meet your paediatric first-aid needs, we offer the following NEW RQF qualifications which are replacing the old QCF qualifications:
