FPOSi Course Dates

FPOSi courses are delivered over two weekends. In delivering courses like this, our FPOSi course dates do not interfere with our learners normal working week. It also prevents loss of earnings, which could or would happen if they attended a course during a working week.


The course has a total Guided Learning Hours (GLH) of 30 hours over the four days.

Our next course dates for our FPOSi courses are as follows:

  • To be announced (part 1)
  • To be announced (part 2)


Our FPOSI instructor is one of the best (if not The Best) instructors in the industry.

Our Instructor is a former Royal Marine and Yorkshire Ambulance Paramedic who has worked as a medic in hostile environments and under extreme pressure.

Because is he full of knowledge, he is also a very engaging guy who ensures that students learn well and retain their knowledge long after the course has been delivered.


Our Awarding Body for FPOSi courses is Qualifications Network. For full details about our FPOSi course content please visit our FPOSi Page
