Qualsafe First Response Emergency Care (Level 3 RQF)
Ideal as an alternative to the First Person on Scene Intermediate (FPOSi) qualification, the 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 First Response Emergency Care (Level 3 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.
