Sample Video: Blended FPOS course introduction

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 FPOS Basic, Intermediate and Enhanced do not exist anymore and it has been replaced by a new regulated version.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 course is the part one which is online video training delivered through ProTrainings. You will need to complete the classroom part two practical in order to gain your qualification. Completing your FPOS as a blended qualification will save you valuable time in the classroom.  This course is ideal for the standard and extended versions.

The new FPOS qualification leads itself to blended training very easily. With ProTrainings online part you will complete a series of videos, knowledge review questions to test your understanding and a short online test. You will also complete an open response question book which is taken to your practical lesson to confirm your understanding and save time in the classroom.

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. Level 4 First Person on Scene (FPOS) 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 extended certificate and the standard certificate covering fewer subjects. There are no pre-requisites for this course, however, first aid knowledge is recommended.

This course is also an ideal standalone video online course to improve your first aid knowledge and understanding.

This course comes with 20.0 hours of CPD, although the time to complete the course online may be less than this. Total course time includes 10 hours and 35 minutes of video training as well as knowledge reviews, final test, remedial help and reviewing downloaded material.

The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.

The Pearson BTEC Level 4 Extended Certificate for the First Person on Scene is for learners who work in, or who want to work in, the pre-hospital care industry as first responders. Learners will normally be employed as, or looking to apply for jobs as, a first responder in a primary care role. However, in some cases, learners may be acting as a first responder as part of a secondary role in an industry which requires first responders to have a greater breadth of knowledge and skills that are provided by first aid qualifications or the Pearson BTEC Level 4 Certificate for First Person on Scene.

The qualification gives learners the opportunity to:

  • Develop knowledge related to the pre-hospital care industry, including how their role fits into the wider sector as well as the responsibilities of the first responder, established practices relating to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, as well as the prevention and control of infection
  • Develop technical knowledge that underpins the role, duties and responsibilities of the first responder. This covers areas such as the management of scene safety, the clinical care and management of the casualty, the provision of effective clinical handovers to the next echelon of care, as well as the post-incident procedures for which the first responder is responsible
  • Develop practical skills of safe incident management and managing the care of causalities while awaiting the arrival of definitive pre-hospital care
  • Develop knowledge to and skills to be able to make critical decisions and medically manage the safe extrication of casualties
  • Achieve a nationally-recognised Level 4 qualification
  • Develop their own personal growth and engagement in learning.
