  • This is for:

    This course is a regulated and nationally recognised qualification specifically designed for those looking to progress their career in the emergency services, ambulance services, event medical sector and high-risk workplaces. Recognised by many as an Emergency Care Assistant (ECA) equivalent. This course is for those who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide prehospital care to patients requiring emergency care/treatment.

  • Objectives:

    The objective of the course is to enable learners to attain the knowledge and practical competencies needed to deal with a range of prehospital emergency situations. The assessment is designed to demonstrate competency in prehospital care to gain employment and a ‘licence to practice’ from an employer.

  • Certification:

    After completing the assessments and workbooks, learners will receive a RQF accredited qualification. Two certificates will be offered (the qualification and a list of the units in the qualification). The certificate date is the date of achievement of the final unit. This qualification is valid if the learner maintains a CPD portfolio and holds a valid Immediate Life Support qualification.

Course Summary

One week of study which contains three units for the full award. Delivered by a Paramedic-led team using top of the range simulation equipment and facilities. A combination of self-directed and guided learning, theoretical and practical in nature with online support throughout.

This course runs regularly at our Chester training centre. Please contact us for more details: 01829 732 615
