Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care (FREC®) – FREC Level 3




Includes Ambulance Care Essentials

FREC Level 3 is the first Certificate of a suite of qualifications leading to a career in prehospital carer, and is the first step to becoming a paramedic outside of university.

We are told that we are the best equipped independent provider of pre hospital education in the UK, and are staffed by front line professionals, There are many “centres” that staff with solely ex military or privately educated individuals with no frontline experience of Pre-Hospital Care. The higher levels of FREC will require Paramedic, Nurse or Doctor tutor staff, so make sure you select a centre that can provide tutors at this level, as a core member of their full time staff.

For the best experience of FREC, ideally placed in the centre of the UK with easy access from the M1, M42, M6 and M69, and ACTUAL pre hospital experts, come to HDP.
