The Well-Being of the First-Aid Responder
An assessment takes place at the end of the third day. There is a practical and theoretical element to the assessment. Participants complete a multiple-choice examination paper and undertake skills assessments. In order to be successful, participants must achieve a mark of 80% or greater in each element of the assessment.
Successful completion of the First Aid Response course leads to joint certification by both PHECC and Order of Malta Ireland as a recognised institution. All successful participants will receive a certificate and wallet-sized certification card which is valid for two years. Recertification in First Aid Response is required every 2 years.
