This course is designed to recognise life threatening injuries and administer treatment. It equips learners with a higher level of medical skill meaning they can medically assist a patient until paramedics arrive and continue to assist the paramedic thereafter.

It provides fire and rescue personnel, non-operational managers and community responders with a recognised qualification. It also benefits the MOD, police forces, the prison service and private companies supplying rescue personnel, by providing the skills, knowledge and understanding to deal with medical emergencies until the ambulance service arrives.
