Important Note

Please be aware that a certificate from a Faculty endorsed course indicates completion of an educational course and does not infer ability to practice.  It may not be used to indicate a Professional qualification of a license to perform a specific procedure.  Individual accountability for any action subsequently taken by the holder must be governed according to his or her particular professional rules of codes of practice.

Competency Framework

The Faculty developed the PHEM Skills Framework with the purpose of developing a series of levels to allow a greater understanding of the clinical skills/competencies of various pre-hospital care providers arriving at an incident.

These levels have been designed specifically for the purpose of facilitating good inter-agency working on scene and are not related to educational attainment or Skills for Health Levels. It is also hoped that non medical organisations may use the framework as a benchmarking exercise for any of their staff who have casualty care as part of their role.

Complaints procedure for endorsed courses

If you have any concerns about a Faculty endorsed course you have attended please contact the training provider in writing in the first instance. If you do not receive a reply or your concerns have not been addressed then please email:

Andy Smith
Chairman of the Training and Standards Committee

Please enclose copies of the correspondence between yourself and the training provider. All complaints will be dealt with in confidence.
