First Person On Scene First Aid Training Course – 7 Day
First person on Scene is aimed at those who are likely to work, or want to work, in high risk hostile environments, such as close protections or pre-hospital care. This course is one of the most advanced medical courses you can qualify in for non-clinicians. The lifesaving interventions you are taught along with realistic environments and pressure we put you in will prepare you as best as possible for the situations you may find yourself in.
What makes our offer different is that our training is provided by ex-front line Army medic with 12 years’ experience, our tutor has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan as a front line medic and has a wealth of knowledge and experience in performing lifesaving interventions in threatening conditions.
Learn tips, tricks and a mountain of advice and guidance straight from the person who has been there and done it, no PowerPoint can give you that.
How the Course is Delivered
The course will mainly be classroom based with some classroom and outdoor scenarios. There is a theory and practical assessment during this course. The theory consists of an online assessment on your second day which should take around 20-40 minutes. The practical is done concurrently throughout the week under the supervision of a tutor. We finish the final day with a substantial scenario that you will carry out in your group as a whole, working together under pressure to put all you’ve learnt that week into practice in a controlled environment.
There is no previous knowledge or qualification required in order to attend this course, however the course is physically demanding. If you have any disabilities or have any questions on whether you are able to take part please do give us a ring so we can discuss any concerns.
This course is delivered over 7 days, depending on the convenience of the individual or group we can do Mon-Fri and finish off on the Tuesday the following week, or we can do Monday – Sunday.
