The Qualsafe Awards Level 2 Award in citizenAID is a regulated qualification designed to teach members of the public life-saving skills for use in the event of a deliberate multiple casualty incident.
Based on the citizenAID, this half day qualification will teach Learners how to react safely, pass on effective messages to the emergency services, prioritise the injured and give life-saving first aid in these extreme situations.
The citizenAID course requires 3 hours of teaching time (plus breaks).
Assessment is in the form of practical exercises which you must pass to qualify.
Please note that candidates must be able to perform exercises at floor level where required. It is a requirement of all regulated courses that the candidate should be able to communicate effectively with Emergency Services and, although this is not assessed formally, your instructor must be satisfied that this is the case.
Once qualified, the certificate is valid for 3 years, at the end of which candidates will need to attend a new course to re-qualify.
We book a maximum of 12 people per trainer. Larger groups can be accommodated with additional trainers.
To maintain as safe a training environment as practical all shared training equipment is thoroughly sanitised before each course including changing of manikin lungs. Other items such as training dressings are supplied new for every course.
When teaching at your premises we will follow your Covid Safety protocols, only requesting that masks and gloves are worn for any close contact exercises. On our open or public courses we do require masks to be worn unless we are made aware of a valid medical exemption in advance. When this is the case, proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test taken in the preceding 24 hours will be required.
