The Level 3 Award in First Person on Scene Support (RQF) is designed to develop learners’ knowledge and skills required to effectively deal with a range of emergencies requiring medical assistance. These include general skills (roles and responsibilities, consent, pre-hospital treatment, patient assessment, adult/ paediatric basic life support), management of traumatic and thermal injuries (external bleeding, catastrophic haemorrhage, musculoskeletal injuries, head injuries, traumatic eye injuries, spinal injuries, burns and frostbite) and the management of a number of other medical emergencies (heart attack, angina, stroke, asthma, anaphylaxis, diabetes, epilepsy, poisoning and sepsis).

This qualification is aimed at for those working in frontline services (e.g. close protection, security, event and private medical services and private security details operating in remote areas) in addition to those looking to further enhance their knowledge and skills within first aid. Through taking this qualification, learners will develop the subject matter competence to assess, stabilise and care for a patient for up to 30 minutes, and/ or until a time at which the patient can be treated by a pre-hospital care provider, so as to prevent deterioration and preserve life.

The qualification meets grade descriptor C of the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine framework.
