First Aid Responder (Includes CPR)

This 3-day course educates participants in the proper response to any workplace emergency. The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) who certify this course have the responsibility for defining the standards of education in pre-hospital emergency care. First Aid Response or FAR 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 standard also. The course takes eighteen hours to complete. On the third day an assessment will be conducted which will be skills-based but also including a short multiple choice question exam designed to reinforce the knowledge and skills learnt on the course. All successful course participants will be given a joint PHECC/recognised institution FAR certificate. The certificate will expire after 2 years when you may re-certify by taking a FAR Refresher course.
