QQI Level 5 Occupational First Aid award

The QQI Level 5 Occupational First Aid award is being phased out and the PHECC FAR award is the only first aid award recognised by the Health & Safety Authority from 1st September 2017.

As of September 1st, 2017 the HSA will only recognise the PHECC First Aid Response (FAR) training as meeting the needs of OFA in the workplace.

The HSA will recognize training & assessment relating to QQI’s Level 5 OFA that took place up to August 31st, 2017.  That recognition will be for a 2 year period.

Refresher certs issued up to August 31st, 2017  will also be recognised by the HSA for a 2 year period.

As of September 1st, anyone wanting to renew their OFA certificate will have to complete a 2 Day FAR refresher course instead of the 1 day refresher.

Currently the pass grade is 50% - as of September 1st, 2017 under the PHECC FAR award the course pass grade will be 80%.
