For more information please see below, please get in touch for further information and to confirm your place - we look forward to supporting and developing your career within the Ambulance Service 

We have private ambulance providers who will provide support and mentor-ship as you accrue placement the placement hours you require to complete FREUC 5.   The current NHS regions are covered by our placement providers; SCAS, EEAS, EMAS, NEAS & SECAMB. 

To qualify at FREUC 5 level you must successfully complete a minimum of 750 placement hours, the majority of these hours will need to be completed whilst working on a front-line ambulance attending emergency call.  Whilst 750 hours is a minimum the placements are about achieving competency in the areas you have been trained, the hours stated should be treated  as a guide only.  Some hours may be claimed in alternative settings but since FREUC 5 is a pre-hospital care course we expect the bulk of the hours to be completed on an ambulance.  

A blue light driving qualification (Level 3 CERAD) will be required by our placement providers.  These can be arranged directly with the placement providers.   Whilst ALR Training Ltd will put students in touch with their nearest provider who will offer bank employment as an ECA, the student will be required to pass the individual providers, clearance, compliance and assessment process.  

Whilst an interview process is not required to enter onto our FREUC 5 programme we strongly suggest that prospective students get in touch to discuss with one of our Paramedic trainers whether the course is right for them and the opportunities in their area.   We look forward to hearing from you ......
