First Aid Responder (FAR) Training Fund ends on 31st October 2021
Final Call – FAR reimbursement – Training Must Be Completed By 31st October 2021
Due to Covid-19 pandemic public health restrictions, the practical training element of FAR courses were put on hold and as a result, Tusla and the Dept of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth (DCEDIY) have agreed to extend the reimbursement time-frame to meet this regulatory requirement to 31st October 2021. All training must be completed by 31st October as Certificates dated after this date will not be acceptable. New regulations come into effect from 1st November for all Early Learning & Care Services.
To support services to meet their regulatory requirement the DCEDIY has extended and altered the FAR Reimbursement Fund which will fund one FAR first aid training place per registered ELC, SAC and CM, to a maximum of €225 per full course or €175 per refresher course.
