Our First Person on Scene (FPOS) training course explains and teaches how to provide essential care in the first few minutes of an emergency.

The HSE-approved course teaches attendees skills associated with rapid assessment, stabilisation and the transfer of both trauma victims and those suffering a medical emergency. Because of the experienced ability of our instructors, if requested before course commencement bespoke situations tailored to your working environment can be designed to make course content seem more relevant to the industry your company is in.

FPOS training is an intermediate-level course. Despite no previous experience being required and anyone with a desire to learn is welcome to attend, FPOS is fully recognised by the security industry.
