In response to new DFE regulations, INRAD Group has developed a new one-day training course, Emergency Paediatric First Aid (EPFA), to complement our existing two-day Paediatric First Aid (PFA) course.

Under the new DFE rules, all newly-qualified early years staff who have completed a level 2 or 3 qualification on or after 30 June 2016 must gain either a full (2-day) or emergency (1-day) Paediatric first aid certificate within 3 months of starting work*. The rules also specify critical ratios of children to qualified first aiders.
