FAQ

What about attendance, do I need to attend each session?

 YES. The structure of the programme is very intense and such Medipro feel it is essential that each session is attended.

We do however recognise the need in an emergency that you may miss some sessions. In this instance, we have systems in place to ensure your studies are not affected and you do not fall behind.

Full details can be found within the Attendance Policy

Is there a placement opportunity to enhance my learning?

Yes, we have a very unique arrangement where all our FREC 3 students can observe with one of our paramedic rapid response cars who support the local NHS ambulance service with 999 response. This will be automatically arranged for you.

Will this observational placement be during my course?

Yes, it will occur during the evening so it doesn’t impact on your studies. It is optional if you do not wish to complete it.

If I complete my FREC 3 course with another provider, can Medipro support the observational placement element?

Unfortunately we are unable to support placements for students who have completed their training elsewhere. Medipro placements are strictly for our own students.

Do you offer any payment options?

Yes we have a number of finance and payment options available to students. These include:

  • ELCAS for military leavers
  • 0% finance loans
  • Payment plans

We encourage you to call and discuss the available options.

What if I need to cancel my programme?

If you need to cancel your programme, for whatever reason, then Medipro can look at moving you onto a future programme. If you need to cancel and are unable to re-schedule, then you will need to refer to Medipro terms and conditions regarding cancellation fees and exiting a course.

If I’m unsuccessful can I get a refund?

If you are unsuccessful then Medipro will look at developing you an individual learning plan to close out any identified deficiencies and discuss the possibility of returning on a future programme.

What if I have a complaint?

Medipro takes all complaints seriously and will attempt to resolve all complaints satisfactorily.  Details of the complaints procedure is available in Medipro Complaints Policy as well as your student handbook.

Can I appeal an academic decision?

Yes, Medipro operate a robust appeals process for students who don’t agree with an academic grade, award or assessment decision. Details of how to raise an academic appeal is contained within your student handbook.

What happens if I fail an assessment?

Throughout the programme there are several assessments as well as a number of varied assessment strategies. Should any student fail or not pass any element, Medipro will put in place a robust development plan to assist you in achieving the required standard. All assessment can be retaken to give students as much opportunity to achieve the award.

I have a IHCD First Person on Scene (Intermediate) that is due to expire, can I go onto this course to update?

Yes this is very common amongst those who have previously or already hold the FPOS award. However, we have a 3 day conversion which can be found HERE.

 What assessments do I complete?

The assessments are varied throughout the programme and include:

  • Short answer question papers MCQ
  • Practical OSCEs

Do the costs include accommodation?

No, students are responsible for arranging their own accommodation at their own cost. However, we can help you find the most cost effective solution and some of the finance and loan options can have accommodation costs added to them.

Can I go onto a higher programme after this course?

Yes, the FREC suite is designed for you to keep enhancing your skills and knowledge. The next qualification is the FREUC 4 which can be found HERE.

Do the ambulance services accept this award?

There is no yes or no answer for this as each service have their own workforce plan and grades. As it is a nationally recognised award many services do employ students with this qualification, please check with the service directly which you are interested in. Remember it is worth discussing it with the service clinical education department before speaking with their HR team.

It is welcomed across the private/independent sector for events and other roles as well as being accepted by the SIA for the security industry.

I have a disability or a long term medical condition, can I still apply?

Having a disability or long term health condition doesn’t necessarily prevent you from becoming a pre-hospital clinician. We encourage you to contact us to discuss your individual circumstances.

If I have further questions or concerns can I speak with someone?

Yes. We will be releasing several dates for open days where students who are considering this course can call in and discuss the issues or concerns. Alternatively our admission team are always at hand to assist and can be contacted via email at admissisons@medipro.co.uk or by calling 01325 609030

    Just completed the FREC3 course here with Medipro. The tutors (Alex &Mike) where brilliant and took the time to help each of us individually when needed. Great “hands on” sessions and well written course notes / manuals.

    :

    Perfect for anyone who needs the extended skills. I deal with riding accidents so this is ideal as I can now do more for the casualties whilst waiting for the ambulance/paramedic.
