Course Overview

Our QualSafe Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care (RQF) course delivers a minimum of 35 hours of classroom-based theory and face-to-face practical instruction, and is designed to instruct up to a maximum of 6 delegates. This 5-day course provides the knowledge and practical skills required to deal with a wide range of pre-hospital first response emergency care situations, and is ideal for ensuring those working in first response emergency care roles are competent and fully trained.

This course consists of a training room lecture, DVD presentation, written assessment, practical training and assessment.

This course is suitable for individuals with a distinct role in their workplace or within voluntary and community engagements, where they are tasked with delivering prehospital care to patients in need of emergency care or treatment. It is well-suited for individuals aspiring to advance their careers in emergency services, ambulance services, healthcare environments, and it also caters to specialized medical positions within law enforcement and security industries, energy and utilities industries, construction, and the military.

Please note that learners will be expected to take part in exercises such as CPR and AED use, so please ensure delegates are in good health and do not have anything that may preclude them from taking part in the practical assessment. Delegates must be at least 17 years old to attend this course and it is advised that learners have a minimum of Level 1 in Literacy or Numeracy, or equivalent due to the multiple choice examination at the end of the course.
