PHECC First Aid Response Course (FAR)

As and from the 1st January 2018 the Health & Safety Authority will only recognise the PHECC First Aid Response Education and Training Standard (FAR) as meeting the needs of Occupational First Aid in all workplaces.


The objective of FAR is to improve, and replace the current Occupational First Aid course. FAR also includes the full PHECC Cardiac First Response Community Standard. 

We are now providing in-house training. We will call to your business, creche, school or site to deliver this course. 

Participants holding a current QQI Occupational First Aid certificate will automatically migrate over to the new First Aid Response Course or FAR and receive the PHECC FAR certification. Click HERE for more details on our FAR refresher course.

This course is recommended by the Dept of Children and Youth Affairs for those working in Childcare. Read more here.
