First Person on the Scene Intermediate (FPOSi)


Dates to be confirmed – £450

The FPOSi credentials have never been in such high demand. More and more employers want new staff that are already medically trained. The certification is mandatory in many professions, especially those in the Close Protection Industry, looking to work overseas.

Having an internationally recognised medical certification could help your CV standout and open up new opportunities for your career.

The FPOSi training you receive is considerably more in depth that the 1 day First Aid at Work award.

On this 5 day course you will learn all the necessary procedures and skills to equip you in being a well qualified, confidant first responder. The IHCD is the awarding body (via Edexcel). It is also accredited by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
