Course Details

This PHECC First Aid Response (FAR) training course is a replacement for the QQI Occupational First Aid.

This course is open to anyone who currently holds a valid QQI Occupational First Aid Certificate.

The Health & Safety Authority (HSA) now recognises the PHECC First Aid Response (FAR) training course as meeting the needs of occupational first aid. The FAR Standard was developed by the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) an independent statutory body who set the standards for education and training for pre-hospital emergency care in Ireland.

All our instructors have a valid FAR instructor certificate and are vastly experienced in the delivery of First Aid training in the workplace.

Photo ID and PPS number are required for registration on Day 1 of this course.

Certificates will be valid for two years.
