The Security Industry Authority (SIA) now recognise the Level 3 First Person on Scene Intermediate (RQF) we deliver here at SCTNI as an acceptable First Aid Qualification for the Close Protection within the Private Security Industry.
The SIA require officers in Close Protection Security Industry to hold a suitable first aid related qualification. The Level 3 First Person on Scene qualification provides learners with the knowledge and lifesaving skills to assess, manage and treat a patient in a trauma and/or medical emergency and to stabilise the patient. It has been designed at a Level 3 to more closely recognise the officer’s responsibilities and activities in close protection.
This qualification is also regulated by Ofqual and is clinically endorsed by the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh, Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care. The recognition will shortly be listed on the SIA website: www.sia.homeoffice.gov.uk.
Keep an eye out as we launch our other security related qualifications!
