ACL Safety Training

First Aid Responder

First Aid Response or FAR is the new First aid training standard set by the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC).

It is a foundation first aid course that trains course participants to provide first aid for a person who becomes suddenly unwell or injured until the arrival of emergency medical services. FAR includes the full Cardiac First Response - Community module also.

It replaces the old Occupational First Aid course which will no longer be recognised by the Health & Safety Authority or PHECC from May 2019.

PHECC is the regulator for emergency medical services (EMS) in Ireland and it has responsibility for reviewing and monitoring training standards, maintaining quality pre-hospital care and maintaining a statutory register of EMS practitioners and First Aid trainers.

Our trainer is a qualified health professional accredited by PHECC and current on the PHECC register of recognised first aid trainers.
