First Response Emergency Care is a qualification on the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) and therefore regulated by OFQUAL. The FREC suite of qualifications has been developed by the Awarding Body Qualsafe and clinically endorsed by the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh – Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care (FPHC). Venture Medical UK is an approved Qualsafe Centre to provide the First Response Emergency Care Level 3 qualification. Our centre, policies, tutors and equipment have passed inspection by Qualsafe to provide this qualification.
The FREC system is modular-based, enabling a participant to progress through each level from FREC 3 to FREC 6 if desired. On successful completion of all levels and competencies, the participant can apply for registration as a Paramedic with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).
This Level 3 Certificate meets the FPHC criteria for descriptor ‘D’ provider on the PHEM skills framework. More details are at the Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care (RQF) Qualification Specification
