The purpose of the First Person on Scene (FPOS) qualifications is to provide immediate life support to the patient pending the arrival of definitive pre-hospital care. The Pearson BTEC Level 3 Certificate for First Person on Scene is for learners who are working in, or who are intending to work in, the pre-hospital care sector as first responders. Learners will normally be employed, or looking to apply for jobs, in roles for which being a first responder is a secondary but important aspect of the role.
