First Response
Emergency Care Level 3
(FREC3 re-qualification)


Ideal as an alternative to the First Person on Scene Intermediate (FPOS-I) qualification, the QA Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care (RQF) also forms part of a progressive suite of prehospital care qualifications that lead to the QA Level 6 Diploma in Paramedic Practice (RQF).

This 3 day FREC3 re-qualification course is perfect for those who have already completed a FREC3 or FPOS-I qualification and are due to re-qualify. Learners are required to provide proof of their existing qualification before the start of the course.

The course is endorsed by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care and fulfils the competencies set out in the PHEM skills framework at descriptor level D. It is also one of the few first aid qualifications recognised by the Security Industry Authority (SIA).

This fantastic course is perfect for a range of roles in emergency care, such as Event Medical Responder, Emergency Care Support Worker, Close Protection Operative and more.

The course lasts 3 days and is only available as face-to-face training.
