QNUK Level 3 Award in

Responding to Anaphylactic Reactions (RQF)

Qualification number: 603/2457/0

Guided learning hours: 3

Total Qualification time: 5

Credit value: 1

Validity: 1 year

Who is this for? This qualification is for those that require additional training in basic life support and management of anaphylaxis. Many attendees are those working in environments that support children that may be at risk of severe allergic reactions, for example those working in nurseries and other early years settings.

The qualification has also been designed as the perfect add-on to standard first aid courses such as the QNUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First aid (RQF). Where this qualification is combined with another first aid course, the guided learning hours can be reduced, due to the range of similar subjects.


This qualification is available to those over 16 years.

Due to the language of the assessment, it is recommended that learners have sufficient command of the English language in order to understand the assessment and to undertake the recommended assessment methods.

Attendees will be required to demonstrate first aid procedures as they would in a real work environment. This includes providing CPR to a casualty who is on the floor, therefore be physically capable of doing so.
