This QNUK Level 3 Award for the First Person on Scene (International) (FPOSi) is a four day course and is used by those who need to go beyond standard level First Aid, who may have access to more advanced medical equipment and resources.
This course develops the knowledge and skills required by those working in security services or high risk environments and ensures learners can provide help for a range of medical conditions and trauma related injuries. A specific difference to the QNUK Level 3 Award for First Responders course is that it also develops an awareness of ballistic and blast injuries and managing them. While the qualification has been developed for Close Protection Operatives working in the UK and abroad, the knowledge and skills it develops are also ideal for Cabin Crew, Industrial First Aiders and those working in remote areas.
Compared to other Level 3 Pre-Hospital Care qualifications on the market such as First Response Emergency Care (FREC), this qualification meets more level D competency descriptors on The Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh Faculty of Pre-hospital Care (FPHC) Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) framework. This qualification is delivered in line with our Clinical Governance Policy. Tailored to your needs and environment in Newcastle, across the North East or UK, this Advanced First Aid course meets the needs of:
