As a trainee technician you are a member of the emergency ambulance crew, responding to 999 calls. Once qualified, you will work alongside an emergency care assistant or a paramedic. You will be required to make clinical decisions and will be the lead clinician if crewed up with an Emergency Care Assistant (ECA), which will enable you to provide patients with potentially life-saving care at the scene and getting patients to hospital as fast as possible.
Working shifts and in all weathers; you will deal with a range of different people and situations. The trainee technician role is also an option to consider if you wish to progress to paramedic level in the future.
