IMPORTANT INFORMATION UPDATE:

Please note under new Phecc Training Standard it is a requirement that you re-certify before your current OFA/FAR certificate is out of date.

Previously, under the old Occupational First Aid (OFA), there was a grace period given of up to 90 days.

Under the new First Aid Response (FAR) system, there will be no grace period granted once your certification date is up.

It is strongly recommended to re-certify within the 3-year deadline. If unable to complete refresher training within the 3 year period you may complete a full 3 day First Aid Responder course again to re-certify.
