FREC Qualifications

Ambulance side shot

Following a review of national qualification frameworks, East of England Ambulance Service will now recognise the First Response in Emergency Care (FREC) as an entry qualification for roles during the recruitment process.

FREC 3/4 is comparable to an ECSW scope of practice with FREC 5 being comparable to an EMT scope.

The trust will not be delivering any of these courses internally, however if any staff member currently holds a FREC qualification at a higher grade than their current role in EEAST then please contact to discuss your individual situation.
