All our instructors have several years of practical first aid experience in the field and in tutoring. They are all qualified FAR instructors.
We teach theory sessions followed by practical sessions where the participants get the chance to test their new skills.
The course is tested through skills demonstrations and multiple choice questions.
A PHECC FAR certificate is issued to all successful participants which is valid for 2 years. A 2-day refresher course must be attended within this period to keep the certificate valid.
Classes are restricted to 6 trainees to ensure you gain and retain a strong knowledge of practical skills.
The cost of this course is € 355 per person which includes the supply of a first aid manual and training materials. The cost reflects a 1:6 trainer-to-trainee ratio, an emphasis on small-group learning, and successful completion leads to a PHECC FAR certificate which covers business needs under Health and Safety regulations. Discounts are available for groups.
