This FREC3 course is taught by highly experienced trainers. All our course training instructors have worked in hazardous and emergency situations, where a high standard of first aid is required and essential.

These real-life skills help them deliver training to candidates from a practical and operational perspective.

The assessments for the First Response Emergency Care Level 3 (FREC3) Requalification course are designed to ensure candidates demonstrate both theoretical understanding and practical proficiency in emergency care. These assessments include a written examination, practical skills assessments, scenario-based assessments and continuous observation.

Successful completion of these assessments is required to achieve requalification and a Qualsafe Awards Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care. This ensures delegates maintain the high standards of practice expected in pre-hospital emergency care. 

The Qualsafe Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care is valid for a period of three years from the date of issue.

A very in depth and informative first aid course. With a very good instructor who kept it interesting but not stressful..

Our first aid content was made even better by the amazing knowledge and fun personality of our trainer Andy McCormc. Very well together and even personalised and adapted to our individual industry trauma response requirements. Highly recommend.
