Who can teach a FAR course?

Who can teach a FAR course?

A PHECC certified FAR Instructor working on behalf of a recognised institution can teach FAR courses. Tutor/assistant tutor (or facilitators) and EFR instructors on the PHECC Register may also teach FAR courses as long as they have a valid CFR instructor certificate.

Will I get a certificate?

Yes all successful course participants must be given a joint Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council/recognised institution FAR card/certificates. The certificate will expire after 2 years when you may re-certify. 5. Where can I access FAR training? PHECC Recognised Institutions are listed on the PHECC website. Only FAR instructors working with recognised institutions are approved to deliver training and issue joint institution/PHECC FAR certificates.

What can I expect on a FAR course?

We are recognised by the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council and only PHECC recognised institutions can deliver a FAR course. The course should take no less than 18 teaching contact hours (averaging 6 hours per day), but can also be delivered on a modular basis e.g. over successive weekends. It will be delivered by a certified FAR instructor who will lead and guide you through the course. You can expect the course to be delivered by a combination of presentations, demonstrations and lots of practical sessions. The CFR part of the course takes about 4-5 hours and is DVD led. The assessment will be skills based and a short multiple choice question exam designed to reinforce the knowledge and skills learnt on the course.

Who are the first aid responders?

A first aid responder may be a healthcare practitioner or a member of the public who has undertaken a First Aid Response course. The first aid responder will be taught how to assess and manage patients in accordance with the PHECC FAR standard and clinical practice guidelines (CPGs).
