Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care
Ideal as an alternative to the First Person on Scene Intermediate (FPOSi) qualification, the Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care (FREC 3) (RQF) also forms part of a progressive suite of pre-hospital care qualifications that lead to the QA Level 6 Diploma in Paramedic Practice (RQF).
The 3 day QA Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care (RQF) re-qualification course is also perfect for those who have already completed an FPOSi qualification and are due to requalify.
Endorsed by The Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care– The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, and fulfilling the competencies set out in the PHEM skills framework at descriptor level D, this fantastic qualification is perfect for a range of roles in emergency care, such as:
- Event Medical Responder/First Responder
- Emergency Care Support Worker and more.
FREC 3 is one of the few first aid qualifications recognised by the Security Industry Authority (SIA).
FREC 3 is a regulated and nationally recognised qualification specifically designed for those seeking a career in the emergency services, ambulance service, the event and security medical sector or those who work in high risk workplaces.
On successful completion, candidates can undertake the First Response Emergency Care Level 4 to progress their career and learning.
