FAR – First Aid Training




Under the Child Care Act 1991 (Early Years Services) Regulations 2016, a new regulatory requirement came into force on June 1st, 2020. From this date under Regulation 25, there must be a person(s) who has trained in FAR (First Aid Response) with a trainer approved by the Pre- Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) immediately available to children attending the childcare service.


IMPORTANT: WCCC does not offer First Aid training directly and cannot hold responsibility for the quality or certification of courses run by other organisations. You can contact any of the companies below which are registered with PHECC or any other approved trainer on the PHECC website.
