FAR Reimbursement Extension & New Training Opportunity

As you are aware from June 1st 2020, 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) available in Early Childhood Services at all times.

Services can claim back the cost of one person attending FAR (either full or refresher) on behalf of your service.  To do this is easy; you must submit the attached application form with a copy of the FAR certificate and a receipt for the cost of the course. The maximum that can be claimed is €225 per full course and €175 per refresher course.

There will be two remaining applications before the fund closes in June.

Q1.         Application closing date: 13 March 2020                Payment date: 27 March 2020

Q2.         Application closing date: 12 June 2020                    Payment date: 26 June 2020


Due to high demand DCCC has organised one additional rollout of the training for services to avail of.

Time: 9.30am to 5.00pm

Please call DCCC on 07491-23442 to book your place.
