To become a paramedic you must complete an ambulance driver training course which allows you to drive patients to hospital in emergencies.
Before starting one of our driving course we take into consideration your individual requirements and structure the course around you.
You will be trained on how to perform safety checks on the vehicle to ensure it is safe for road use.
You will also be trained on how to drive heavy vehicles safely while ensuring you remain in complete control at all times. Different manoeuvres will be taught to ensure you are highly skilled and capable of safely driving an ambulance and passing your test.
On passing your test you will receive a C1 licence that enables you to apply for the ambulance services.
