Additional FTACC Information

Level 3 Award – First Aid Trauma And Casualty Care (RQF)
The FTACC course has been written as a fresh new approach to first aid following the deregulation of First Aid at work by the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE). By avoiding unnecessary jargon and technical information, the course focusses on what really matters to help the casualty in a wide range of typical first aid situations. The standard A.B.C process of assessment has been replaced with the new B.U.R.P.S algorithm developed by leading emergency & pre-hospital care doctors as a significant improvement for the identification of patient conditions.

Who should attend this course:
The HSE requires all organisations to complete a work based risk assessment in order to categorise the level of hazard associated with your work activity. Low hazard e.g. Office staff, retail etc. will benefit from FTACC training.
