Paediatric First Aid Training During Covid
- News Blog Home /
Our policy on PFA training, including that it should include face to face, is set out in an article we put on the Foundation Years website. The article is here: Face-to-face Paediatric First Aid training during the COVID-19 pandemic
In addition in regard to training via Zoom we would say that it doesn’t meet the criteria for face to face training.

There is also more information on the HSE website about this: "First aid during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic". 2023: this has been replaced by COVID-19 restrictions replaced by public health advice
Please don't get caught out by this! Responsibility for your organisations compliance with the rules and regulations remains with you, not the training provider. Training providers will often just deliver what you ask them to.
Please contact us if you want to discuss this.
