Pre-course reading: there is a choice of 2 textbooks Generic Core Material or Ambulance Care Essentials. Both of these are available to buy from our awarding body website.

Classroom based instructor lead training: our FREC level 3 instructors have hands on experience of delivering prehospital patient care through event medical work or working for local ambulance services. The classroom learning is facilitated by the instructor through powerpoint presentation, scenario-based learning, open discussions and formative and summative assessment.

Self-study or CPD: this is a mandatory aspect of the course where learners are asked to either write reflective reports about clinical experience at work or by logging post course self-study hours which have furthered their development.

A total of 153 hours of learning is required, made up of pre-course reading (10 – 30 hours), the contact learning time (40 hours) and ongoing CDP or self-study.

The 40 hours of contact learning are delivered as a 5 day course.
