During this 2 day course, Learners will gain the necessary skills associated with the assessment, treatment and stabilisation of patients at life-threatening incidents. Topics covered include: the roles and responsibilities of the community first responder, assessing a scene at an emergency incident, managing an unresponsive patient, how to administer emergency oxygen, managing a patient with suspected major illness and more. For a more detailed overview of the topics covered, please download the Qualification Specification.
The QA Level 2 Award for Community First Responders (RQF) is ideal for those who are currently performing as, or aspiring to perform as, a community first responder.
Whilst achievement of this qualification confirms that Learners have met both the theoretical and practical requirements, this does not imply a ‘license to practice’ – the scope of practice for which will be determined by the organisation responsible for emergency first responders.
