FAQ Level 3 Award for First Responders on Scene: FROS®

This qualification is Category C on the FPHC PHEM Skills Framework.

The FROS® qualification is one of the available Level 3 Pre-Hospital Care courses, along with First Person on Scene (FPOS), First Responder and First Response Emergency Care (FREC) courses. The course we offer is underwritten by FutureQuals and focuses very much on practical training.

It is an ideal course for:

  • Community First Responders
  • Security operatives (The FROS course is approved by the SIA)
  • Close protection officers
  • Prison guards
  • High risk workplaces where a higher level of first aid is required
  • Fire services
  • Ambulance services
  • Firearms officers
  • Offshore workers
  • Wind turbine workers
  • Coastguards
  • First Aid instructors who want to increase their knowledge and learn more advanced techniques
  • Individuals who want to learn more about how to deal with an emergency situation
  • Individuals who would like to gain a qualification that they can use to support their progression onto a range of health related qualifications, including The Level 3 Award for Ambulance Service First Responders

This training is offered as a blended course. Blended training is where you complete the online module part 1 (approximately 11.5 hours) independently before completing the practical module part 2 (3 days) with an approved instructor. You must complete part 1 prior to attending part 2 of the course. 

What better place to attend the 3-day practical course than in Plymouth, a vibrant waterfront city! If you’re in need of accommodation, the The Duke of Cornwall offer a discount for anyone attending our courses. Whilst here, why not visit some of the country’s most envied beaches and explore some of the South West Coast Path? Just on the edge of Plymouth, you’ll also find one of the finest and largest national parks in Britain – Dartmoor!

The FROS® course is a regulated qualification. The course meets the guidelines and requirements of the Health & Safety (First Aid) regulations 1981 and subsequent changes made in October 2017 and it meets the latest UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines.

Spaces on our FROS® courses are limited to a maximum of 8 people. A hands-on approach ensures that attendees learn first aid skills and have the confidence to use them in a real life situation. Learners are assessed throughout the course on their practical demonstrations, Q&A sessions and a final exam.

On successful completion of the FROS® course, attendees will receive an accredited FAQ Level 3 Award for First Responders on Scene: Emergency First Responder qualification which is valid for three years. An annual FROS® refresher course is highly recommended. To renew, you would need to attend a 3-day FROS® Requalification course.

Attendees completing our FROS® courses receive access to an online manual and video library for refreshing skills and reference through ProTrainings.
