New Zealand Certificate in Emergency Care Level 3

Graduates of this qualification may be able to work in emergency care first responder roles in a variety of settings such as ambulance, outdoor recreation, marine, industrial, and volunteer rescue. Graduates of this qualification do not automatically have an authority to practice - that is a separate endorsement which may be awarded by a service provider. Revalidation: As skill decay occurs when skills are not used regularly, the sector requires graduates to have their skills revalidated to ensure currency with changing practice and its application. This may be by complying with an organisation's internal revalidation process or by completing a recognised recertification process. Learner's are required to hold a current First Aid certificate.
