Course Overview

Would you know how to react in the event of a terrorist attack?

Whenever there is a shooting, stabbing or bomb explosion, the initial priority is understandably to ensure public safety, which can unfortunately cause delays to the emergency services being able to reach the injured.

The QA Level 2 Award in citizenAID (RQF) has been specifically developed to help members of the public learn life-saving skills for use in these extreme situations. Based on the citizenAID phone App and pocket guide, this  regulated qualification is designed to teach people how to react safely, prioritise the injured and give first aid to victims in the event of a deliberate multiple casualty incident.

During this 3 hour course, candidates will have the
opportunity to practise techniques for dealing with
catastrophic bleeding and will be equipped with
the skills and knowledge needed to save lives in the
aftermath of a terrorist attack.
