Conducted Energy Device HCP Assessment Training Courses
In line with the recent home office circular we are keen to hear from clinicians and providers regarding demand for the training course.
At present where an individual has been exposed to a CED discharge they are required to be assessed by a doctor.
In recognition of the changing landscape the guidance has been widened to incorporate appropriately trained nurses and paramedics.
It should be noted that there is no requirement for providers to change to using nurses or paramedics. Where they are already compliant with national requirements for post-CED assessment no costs or additional training need to be incurred.
The additional training (which will initially be provided by the FFLM) is only necessary where providers wish to expand their current post-CED assessment to include nurses and paramedics.
Courses will (in line with our not-for-profit and charitable status) aim to be delivered at cost. In order to aid minimising costs in delivering this course we would appreciate both providers and forces ascertaining if there are police facilities available in their areas for groups of 20 candidates to receive the training course with appropriate social distancing.
The cost of the course will be £140 per candidate (this covers travel and expenses for facilitators, office staff time to book and administer the course, development time of the course and assessment tools, and expenses for the training kit required).
Train the trainer courses will follow the initial rollout.
The syllabus is available here.
The course ties in with work being undertaken by a joint working group including NPCC, RCN, College of Paramedics UKAFNP & RCEM to update the current FFLM guidance and will refer practitioners to the tools and guidance produced by this working group.
