From January 2020   in order to meet the regulatory requirement  for regulation 25, 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).

There must be at least one person who has the FAR certification immediately available to the children at all times. The service may also determine following a risk assessment that more than one person with FAR certification is required for the children attending.

Where a service provides evidence of a person(s) trained in FAR and is available to the children at all times the regulatory requirement will be deemed to be met. This comes into effect in January 2020.

Please note: Tusla will only  accept First Aid Responder (FAR) certification from Jan 2020.


The inspectorate welcomes any additional First Aid training /support for staff in services which enhances the wellbeing, health and safety of the children attending the service.

Please note that everyone on site are NOT required to hold a First Aid Certificate.

Although Tusla do recommend that everyone should have a First Aid Certificate but it is not compulsory.

Provided that there is a person or persons trained in FAR with a current certificate.

Our intensive weekend course would be ideal for those who do not wish to do a FAR course but would be available to assist the trained FAR until the arrival of the emergency services if required.
