Emergency Paediatric and Paediatric Qualification Extensions

Posted on 23rd August 2020

Following guidance from the Department of Education, Safety Training Awards are able to grant a qualification extension for learners who hold either a Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid or a Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid qualification which is due to expire or has already expired.

Due to Coronavirus, if a learners’ qualification expires on or after the 16th March 2020, and they have not been able to revalidate their qualification, a learner’s qualification may be extended until the 25th November 2020.

Anyone wishing to apply for the extension, please contact us, attaching a copy of your Emergency Paediatric or Paediatric certificate if at all possible.

There are discussions taking place regarding the extension for other qualifications up until 30th September. Updates on this will be placed on our website, social media, and emails. Keep an eye on these platforms for further notifications.
