First Aid Responder (FAR) Reimbursement Fund 2019 Expression of Interest for FAR Trainers

Dear Trainer,

A new regulatory requirement for Early Years services will come into force from June 1st 2020.  From this date Tusla Early Years Inspectorate will require services to meet the regulatory requirement for Regulation 25.

Regulation 25 states that there must be a person(s) who has undertaken the FAR (First Aid Response) by a trainer approved by the Pre- Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) immediately available to children attending the service. 

To support the Early Years sector meet this requirement, the DCYA has provided funding for services to claim back the cost of one staff member attending this training.

The funding for the training will be administered to the services by the local County Childcare Committees. To assist services in locating suitable training, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Childcare Committee is now looking for details of interested First Aid Instructors who are delivering FAR training in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown area. 

To be eligible to deliver the training Instructors must:

  • Be suitably accredited with Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) and include their PIN in the Expression of Interest.
  • Be tax compliant.
  • Arrange all aspects of the training.
  • Provide a certificate of completion and a receipt of payment.
  • Organise venue and location of training delivery.
  • Detail the Cost of training per participant.

If you are interested in delivering training to services in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown please reply via email to Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Childcare Committee with details of the above by Friday 1st March 2019.
