Adopt national standards from an approved qualifying body for red cross qualifications so they are recognised

Its crazy that a trauma trained volunteer doesn't even qualify for a first aid at work certificate. BRC needs to adopt nationally recognised programmes such as FREC which would be a nice reward for volunteers and provide an incentive for new recruits

    Ambulance Crew and Commercial Trainers receive an externally approved Pearsons Award.This type of accreditation could be applied to many BRC qualifications.

    Recognised qualifications would help recruit the best staff and help volunteers who are looking for additional paid work. It doesnt make sense that the training is not a recognised qualification when the Red Cross themselves provide training and certificates for work place first aiders. I wasn’t aware of this when I applied, it might send me to other providers as I want to be respected with recognised qualifications.
