FREC 3 Requalification

Prometheus is a Qualsafe Awards registered provider of First Response Emergency Care Level 3 RQF Requalification.

The three-day QA Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care (RQF) re-qualification course is perfect for those who have already completed the full FREC 3 or an FPOSi qualification and are due to requalify.

How will I learn?

We put great emphasis on the “hands-on” aspects of course training, creating true-to-life medical simulations, helping you learn through immersive practical sessions.

Experience as close to genuine patient trauma care as possible – using SIMBODIES™, our ultra-realistic manikins, crafted with outstanding attention to detail, ensuring that every human feature necessary is replicated in your training.

Train with award-winning medical equipment, as used by Ambulance Services and Armed Forces globally.

Why train with us?

All Prometheus Medical instructors are active, clinically current practitioners, meaning candidates will benefit from the most up-to-date medical knowledge.

Where will I learn?

At our purpose-built Herefordshire Campus or, for group bookings, your site if you prefer.

FREC 3 Requalification

Both FREC 3 and FPOSi are valid for 3 years: after they expire the learner needs to take a FREC 3 Requalification to remain qualified.

Professional Pathways

FREC 3 is the entry-level stage of the First Responder Emergency Care (FREC) pathway, enabling a “first responder” to administer pre-hospital emergency care.

FREC 3 is part of a progressive pathway of courses, culminating in a Level 5 Diploma in First Response Emergency and Urgent Care (RQF) (FREUC 5), which is used to progress careers within the emergency services, ambulance services, healthcare settings, and supports specialist medical roles within high-risk workplaces including law enforcement, security, energy and utilities, construction and military.

FREC 3 Skills Framework and Progression

FREC 3 provides the non-healthcare professional with pre-hospital knowledge and practical skills, fulfilling the competencies set out in the PHEM skills framework at descriptor level D.

Candidates with First Person on Scene Intermediate (FPOSi)  will be able to undertake the FREC 3 Requalification and FPOSi can also be used as part of the Entry criteria for FREC 4.

Our training courses will support your next career move if you leave the Armed Forces.
We are an approved learning provider for the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and a member of their Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme (ELCAS). We accept enhanced learning credits for the First Response Emergency Care (FREC) 3 & 4 medical training courses.
