The QA Level 3 Award in Administering Emergency Medical Gases (RQF) has been specifically designed for those who have a responsibility for providing treatment to patients who need medical gases administrating in prehospital care environments, such as those working in the police force, fire service, emergency response or private ambulance sector.
Learners should be able to demonstrate the administration of safe, prompt and effective use of emergency medical gases which can arise when providing emergency treatment and/or management in prehospital care situations.
While the 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 medical gases provision. This qualification does not allow a Learner
to obtain, store or administer medical gases without clinical governance.
