Hi, my first aid is up for renewal soon so I am looking at courses and wondered if there is a paticular one we need to do, I am also a guide leader and they have first aid courses coming up with first response and also refresher courses, will a refresher course be enough? Also my first aid cost me £80 when I did it last year, the guide ones cost £5 for full course or £3 for refresher, I'm praying I can do these!

You need to have a paediatric first aid course and, I think, it has to be at least 12 hours long.

It must be a 12 hour peadiatric first aid course.

The first response is only 6 hours so not sufficient for cm

Thanks for the replies, hopefully I can get on one, what happens if you cant get on a course before your other 1 runs out? I'm starting to worry!

You need to be able to show Ofsted that you are booked on a course... but if you are not covered with a course and you are inspected you will most likely be graded inadequate until you have renewed.

Hth :D
