FIRST PERSON on SCENE (Intermediate)
The FPOS Basic course has been accredited with both the Institute of Health Care Development (IHCD), Edexcel and the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh.
The course is designed to extend the basic skills acquired by First Aiders to the next level. This includes the assessment and management of casualties until the arrival of the ‘Emergency Services’ or other medical professional. This is a vital role during the ‘Golden Hour’ prior to the casualties’ arrival at Hospital.
This course gives students the confidence and competence to manage any scenario encountered, having been taught by trainers who are current practising medical professionals, with a vast experience in this field.
Once the student has successfully completed the course, they will be issued with a certificate that is valid for 3 years.
