How Blended Learning Works:

  • You will be given your own unique login code to access 6 hours of interactive Paediatric First Aid training.

  • You can log in 24/7 which gives you the freedom to choose when you want to learn.

  • All that we require is that you complete the learning 72 hours before your classroom day (If you are booking this course less than 5 days from the classroom day our team will set a specific ‘completion of learning date’ for you).

  • You can choose to complete this module in ‘one go’ or by logging in and out as you complete each segment.

  • The eLearning module can be easily accessed from computers, laptops and tablets.

Classroom Day

When you have completed the eLearning module you will attend a one-day practical Classroom Day in our training room (dates available throughout the year)

  • The Classroom Day runs from 9.15-5.00/5.15 in our Bow training room, 5 minutes walk from Mile End Station. It is easily reached by several tube lines, DLR and buses and is not in the congestion zone.

  • You will be taught in small groups (12 maximum)

  • If you are not sure which Classroom Day date you require, you have the option to complete your eLearning module first and then book your Classroom Day. (If you prefer that option just let one of the Riverside team know when you are ready to book your Classroom Day and we’ll let you know available dates. You need to complete the Classroom Day successfully within 7 weeks of completing your eLearning successfully.

Your Certificate

Once you have successfully completed the course you will be issued an eCertificate by the awarding body. Ofsted accepts eCertificates.If you would also like a hard copy add it to your shopping basket or click this link to purchase one
