QQI Level 5 Occupational First Aid is being reviewed and updated by HSA and PHECC and will transition to First Aid Response (FAR), the new education and training standard for Occupational First Aid with changes coming into effect on 01/09/2017
What is FAR?
First Aid Response or FAR is PHECC’s newest education and training standard. It’s 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 standard also. PHECC have a helpful FAQ page.
What changes will I see?
Much of the course content will remain unchanged and run over three days as previous training with a new limit of 6 students per trainer. Occupational First Aid Refresher training as of 01/09/2017 will run over 2 days with a limit of 6 students per trainer.
Our First Aid Courses are delivered by Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (P.H.E.C.C.) and Occupational First Aid Assessment Agent (O.F.A.A.A.) registered trainers.
