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.

And anyone interested in learning lifesaving medical and trauma skills!
