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 EmergencyĀ Care Council (PHECC) have extended the recertificationĀ deadline to the 31st of July 2021. If your First AidĀ ResponseĀ certificateĀ ‘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.Ā  Failure to do this, the Responder will need to re-sit the 3 day certification course.Ā Ā

This standard is designed to meet first aid and basic life support (BLS) requirements that a person known as ā€œFirst Aid Responderā€ may encounter. The FAR Standard meets the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) requirement for occupational first aid training for the workplace.
