FPOS-I  also know as First Person On Scene - Intermediate, has been designed to equip learners with the skills, knowledge and confidence to help a person in a life threatening situation.


FPOS is designed for those who are likely to be first on the scene of an emergency incident when a person’s life is in danger, such as community responders, fire and police personnel, industrial first aiders and those who want to achieve more than First Aid.


This qualification has been developed with the NHS Ambulance Services and is clinically endorsed by the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care. FPOS also meets the Security Industry Authority first aid requirements for Close Protection Operatives.
