First Aid Response Classroom

A First Aid Responder may be a healthcare practitioner, or a member of the public who has undertaken a First Aid Response course incorporating the Cardiac First Response (CFR) standard. In addition to CFR skills, the First Aid Responder possesses defined skills in the further management of a patient who has become suddenly ill or injured in the pre-hospital environment until the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS). The First Aid Responder is able to assess and manage these patients in accordance with PHECC Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs).

Recertification in First Aid Response is required every 2 years.

We can run these courses as a private course at your company, or you can attend one of our regular Public Courses, if this suits you best. Just check our schedule for suitability.

Who is this course for
This course is specifically designed for anyone with an interest in becoming a qualified First Aid Responder
Course Aim
PHECC (The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council) has designed the First Aid Response (FAR) Standard to offer appropriate training to individuals and groups who require a first aid skill set including cardiac first response. This standard is designed to meet first aid and basic life support (BLS) requirements that a person known as “First Aid Responder” may encounter. The FAR Standard meets the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) requirement for occupational first aid training for the workplace. The Child and Family Agency (TUSLA) guidance also recognises FAR as the standard for child care.
Course Objectives
Upon completion of a recognised First Aid Response course the student will be able to:
• Recognise and Assess the causes and effects of sudden illness and/or injury in a pre- hospital environment and call for emergency medical services.
• React to such pre-hospital emergencies utilising PHECC CPGs.
• Respond in a safe, effective, and appropriate manner to such emergencies utilising the First Aid Response skill set and in accordance with PHECC CPGs as part of the pre-hospital continuum of care.
• Record and Report actions and interventions taken while responding to and managing such incidents and during handover to emergency medical services.
• Retain a caring attitude in their role as First Aid Responders.
The learning objectives in the Standard refer to the management of adults and children unless stated otherwise. Consideration is given when delivering the course to using ‘Plain English’ to explain medical or clinical terms for responders who do not regularly interact with the pre-hospital emergency environment.
Course Requirements
There is no specific entry criterion including a minimum age for undertaking the course. However, a course participant should be mature enough to comprehend the knowledge, skills and implications associated with defibrillation and have a maturity to complete assessment to receive certification.
