This qualification forms part of the QA First Aid suite of qualifications.
The qualification and learning outcomes are based on the blended recommendations of:
• ERC Section 9. First aid
• British Army, Battlefield Casualty Drills This QA qualification is:
• Based on citizenAID, which is the initiative of four deeply experienced UK military and civilian clinicians working in collaboration with industry to improve public resilience
• Based on the contents of the citizenAID app/pocket guide
When there is a shooting, stabbing, vehicle attack, acid attack or bomb explosion the initial priority will be public safety. This can delay the time before the emergency services are able to reach the injured. citizenAID enables the general public to be effective in these situations before the emergency services are available to provide professional medical support.
The objective of the qualification is to benefit Learners who have reached the specified level of attainment through meeting the requirements of the citizenAID learning programme.
The purpose of this qualification is to prepare the Learner to develop the skills and knowledge needed to guide them to react safely, to pass effective messages to the emergency services, to prioritise the injured and to give life-saving first aid in the event of a shooting, stabbing, bombing or other deliberate incident. This combination of effective organisation and immediate treatment will help to save lives.
This qualification is for all members of the public who wish to learn lifesaving skills and techniques in the event of a deliberate multiple casualty incident.
Learners must be at least 14 years old on the first day of the training. There are no other formal entry requirements.
This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years. The Learner must successfully retake the qualification on or before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified.
