BTEC Level 4 Certificate for First Person on Scene (RQF) Blended Part Two - FPOS


BTEC Level 4 Certificate for First Person on Scene (RQF) is the latest qualification launched in 2017 by Pearsons. FPOS Basic, Intermediate and Enhanced do not exist anymore and it has been replaced by a new regulated version. This is the part two of the course for those who have completed the video online part one from ProTrainings.

The First Person on Scene FPOS course is designed for those involved in providing initial emergency care, for example, Community Responders, Fire and Police Officers, personnel involved in the security industry, senior cabin crew and industrial first aiders. 

Taking the first aider on to the next level, topics in this course include pre-hospital assessment, respiration and airway management, circulation and shock and trauma-related injuries, medical emergencies, cannulation, fluid therapy, spinal immobilisation.

Delivered by experienced medical professionals with front-line experience this qualification is endorsed by the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care (Edinburgh) and is certified through Edexcel.  First Person on Scene (FPOS) Intermediate is fully recognised by the Security Industry Authority.  The qualifications and any additional Units are valid for a period of 3 years. Periodic re-training and assessment for both the practical skills and supporting knowledge will, therefore, be required.

The course is available in two versions, this the standard certificate and the extended certificate covering more subjects.

There are no pre-requisites for this course, however, first aid knowledge is recommended.

This course gives learners the opportunity to gain a formally recognised regulated qualification. If you require funding, a regulated qualification is often required. Phone us and we can advise if needed. If you choose our course leading to a regulated qualification, there are additional assessment criteria to be undertaken with an instructor and a small extra certification charge.
