Group First Aid Program
PHECC (Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council)
Our expert instructors have been providing outstanding outdoor team building events to students since 1999.
As Team Ballyhass has grow to well over 120 staff each season the need to develope our instructors into trainers was essential.
We now offer First Aid courses internally and externally to other organisations such as school or corporate groups.
We can offer competitive rates with or without group activity packages.
All of our First Aid Trainers are qualified to deliver first aid courses by PHECC. The council set the standards for education and training for pre-hospital emergency care in Ireland. They publish the practical guideline (CPGs) and recognise institutions to provide training and education
This First Aid Course provides stdents with the knowledge and confidence to assist in of an accident or medical emergency in school or at home. This course may be of particular interest to Transition Year Students. We strongly believe that as many students as possible should leave school with some knowledge of First Aid and CPR
