Course Detail

Are you ready to take your pre-hospital care training to a new level?

Have you completed your FREC 4 training?

Do you need to administer life saving medications in your role?


If you have answered yes to those questions then this qualification could be for you…..


The Qualsafe Level 3 Award in the Safe Administration of Lifesaving Medication (RQF) is intended for those who are employed by a Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered organisation that have a specific responsibility at work to be able to safely administer and monitor the effects of medication within their scope of practice.



Successful learners will gain the knowledge and confidence needed to safely provide lifesaving medication at emergency or life-threatening incidents. Topics covered include: common types of lifesaving medication, determining a patient’s condition, guidelines and protocols relevant to the administration of lifesaving medication.

Assessment For the Level 3 SALM:- 5 X Practical Assessment / Skill Tests 1 X Learner Workbook

(While achievement of this qualification confirms learners have met both the theoretical and practical requirements, this does not imply a ‘license to practice’ – the scope of practice will be determined by the organisation responsible for medication provision. This qualification does not allow a learner to obtain, store or medicate without clinical governance.)
