Paediatric and EFAW/FAW combined courses saving classroom time

2 February 2018 in Featured Articles, Instructor

Paediatric first aidProTrainings have the approval to mix some popular courses to reduce classroom time for students.   You can now combine the following courses and issue 2 certificates as either ProTrainings or regulated qualifications:

  • The FAW can now be combined with the 2 day Paediatric First Aid qualifications
  • The FAW requalification can now be combined with the 2 day Paediatric First Aid qualifications
  • The 2-day Paediatric First Aid can be combined with the EFAW
  • The Blended Paediatric First Aid can be combined with the EFAW

It used to take 3 to 5 days to teach both courses and most of the content was duplicated.  Now by using the combined PowerPoints and adding a little time to each day, both qualifications can be taught in 2 or 3 days.

To deliver this combined course, you will need to be aware of the following requirements:

  • Dual certifying – this means you list two separate courses on ProTrainings, then list them over three days and with the same date – your customers will receive 2 certificates, one for FAW or EFAW and another one for Paediatric First Aid.
  • Download separate paperwork for FAW/EFAW and Paediatric – 2 theoretical assessments, 2 practical assessments but only 1 learner registration form is required (write both course titles on the top), 1 accident report form for the Paediatric course and 1 course.
  • We will shortly upload a combined open response test to the documents area if you would prefer to use a single assessment form
  • Ensure you do not exceed a maximum of 12 students on your course. These can then be uploaded to the relevant course.
  • Students must be 14 years or older.
  • Instructors will need to have the relevant first aid equipment designed to teach infant, child and adult first aid – this includes manikins and AED etc. and one manikin of each size per 4 learners.
  • Courses must be delivered over extended days to allow extra time to cover the extra subjects.

We hope this combined course will increase bookings for you, reduce time teaching similar subjects on separate courses and that demand will be met, leaving a positive and lasting impression on your customer.  Giving learners the option to gain two qualifications is easily done and you can charge extra for the second qualification to cover your costs and increase your profit.

If you have any questions on the delivery of this qualification, please contact or call us 01206 805359 and we will do our very best to answer any queries you may have
