  • FAQ’s

    Q. What is the requirement for a childcare service regarding First Aid Training?
    A. person trained in “first aid for children” is required to be available to the children at all times. Currently there is no accredited paediatric first aid course. Where a person has undertaken training in paediatric/first aid for children and has supporting documentation this is acceptable.
    Q. How can staff be sure that the training they are undertaking is up to standard?
    A: There is no accredited first aid course specifically for use with children and it has been the practice for staff in early years services to undertake training that has been adapted to take account of paediatric emergencies. There is no suggestion that this training has been below standard. However, because the training courses are not accredited, there has been no guarantee of quality. The DCYA recommends that early years staff who are availing of first aid training for the first time should undertake the First Aid Response (FAR) training from a training provider – also known as a “recognised institution” – approved by the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC). The FAR Standard, which was developed by PHECC, offers appropriate training to individuals who require a first aid skill set for both adults and children. In addition to setting the standard, PHECC is responsible for approving organisations to become PHECC-recognised institutions to deliver the training. This means that the quality of the training delivered by these organisations and their instructors is approved by PHECC.
    DX2 Training Solutions is a PHECC Recognised institution and offers First Aid Response Training for those availing of training for the first time. See our first aid response course here
