First Response Emergency Care (FREC)

First Response Emergency Care (FREC) is a suite of courses validated by Qualsafe and delivered by ORMS.  Due to our extensive experience of delivering emergency care courses, you can be certain that the tuition you receive is of the highest quality.

With quality and practicality at its heart, this fantastic new pathway has been designed to allow Learners to work towards becoming a Paramedic, whilst gaining hands-on skills and experience at the same time.

Broken down into stages, Learners first undertake levels 3, 4 and 5 of the First Response Emergency Care (FREC) qualification suite, before going on to study on one of our Paramedic programmes.

This flexible structure allows Learners to progress in stages, so they can use their skills within Prehospital care roles whilst they continue to progress through the programme.

We have been working closely with Qualsafe Awards (QA) to provide ORMS students with a clear and concise pathway to gaining Ofqual regulated prehospital care qualifications, which will also provide FREC Learners with a route to progress into a career in Hazardous or Non-Hazardous medical response.
