Course Aim: The aim of this First Aid Responder Refresher course is to provide learners with the knowledge and skills to be a First Aid Responder.
The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) have extended the recertification deadline to the 31st of July 2021. If your First Aid Response certificate ‘expiry date’ reads anytime since last March 2020, a Responder may complete the refresher course to maintain certification on or before 31st of July 2021. Failure to do this, the Responder will need to re-sit the 3 day certification course.
Course Overview & Content:
PHECC has designed the First Aid Response (FAR) Standard to offer appropriate training to individuals and groups who require a first aid skill set including cardiac first response. This standard is designed to meet first aid and basic life support (BLS) requirements that a person known as “First Aid Responder” may encounter. The FAR Standard meets the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) requirement for occupational first aid training for the workplace.
