Level one is open to individuals who are independent or self-employed as freelance first aiders (event medics) and first aid tutors.
Upon receipt of the application, we will ask potential members for proof of their current first aid qualifications. We also ask for references.
The big difference between level one and Level two (corporate membership) is that it is in the name of an individual (your name) and your qualifications are verified to show that you are qualified in the fields that you claim and AoFAS verify references so we can check to see if you are who you say you are.
We may also ask for further proof of identity.
If for any reason a member is not accepted then their membership subscription will be refunded.
Level One membership to AoFAS.
After acceptance, the level one member will have access to their profile page within the AoFAS directory. This is their platform to describe and promote their services.
The directory will have a geographic, searchable database – search engine, so anyone holding an event or requiring a first aid instructor can search for an AoFAS member.
The benefit to people using AoFAS directory as a resource is that they can rest assured that AoFAS members are checked and verified.
In addition, each AoFAS level one member will receive a top-quality intensive medical course on a monthly basis.
These are distance learning (online) courses with the opportunity to take a diploma examination.
The 12 courses for year one, on a monthly basis (in no particular order), are.
Trauma – First on Scene
Sports Injury First Aid
Catastrophic Bleed Management
Terror Attack/Mass Casualties First Responder
Understanding the Principles and Practises of Event Management
Paediatric First Aid
Consent in Administering First Aid
Scene Management in an Emergency
Diplomas/certificates are optional and a small fee of £5.50 to cover administration is payable.
Not everyone will want a certificate or diploma, they may simply wish to take the course to enhance their knowledge, but the option is there. Diplomas/certificates are delivered via email in PDF format so the member can file, print and display.
You will be permitted to add our AoFAS Member logo to your marketing, website, business cards etc.
Anyone seeing this logo on your marketing material will be able to search for you in our directory, view your profile and be rest assured that your qualifications are genuine, up to date and your references have been verified.
Clearly, it is far more beneficial to use a member of AoFAS than someone who is not checked.
The cost or Level One AoFAS Membership is £8.00 per month
