The Pony Club Paediatric First Aid Course - URGENT UPDATE

The Pony Club has received a number of questions and comments regarding the communication on the new Pony Club Paediatric First Aid Course with Medi-K Training.

We are currently looking into these matters and concerns that have been raised and apologise for any confusion or distress caused.

We have also been made aware of many high quality purpose made training courses already provided to Branches and Centres by local providers.

For that reason we are updating the information:

There are not, and will not be any additional first aid ‘mandatory requirements’ for volunteers in the immediate or near future.

Please note volunteers in this context would be the volunteers that Branches or Centres would train as first aiders.

But, if you should wish to take part in these courses they will be held as stated from 1st April 2018 by Medi-K Training and can be done as either a 2 day stand alone course – or can be added on as a 1 day course to the 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course. If completed within 6 weeks, this will then be offered at a discounted cost throughout 2018.

The extra training provides an EFAW qualification and a nationally regulated OFQUAL level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid.

Following further consultation there will be an update on the 2020 situation at a later date.
