As a Combat Medical Technician, it's important your skills are in the best shape. Make sure you're in top condition to carry out your duties by taking our course and improving your abilities. We will provide all the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary for you to be fit for purpose and practice, working with the Army Medical Directorate Training (AMDT) to provide a clear progression into paramedic registration.

We offer clinical placements to facilitate your learning, with 23 weeks spent in practice settings during the second year. This involves working with an NHS Ambulance Service and undertaking key hospital and out-of-hospital services. You'll be mentored and supported predominantly within a paramedic emergency service, but also have the chance to learn in civilian hospitals and other settings (including military clinical practice) to give you the valuable experience you need in becoming a fully-fledged paramedic.

This is a course designed specifically for serving Combat Medical Technicians. If you are interested, please contact Staff Sgt Serena Asprey at the Army Medical Directorate. The maximum number of applications which we can take for each group is 21.

Graduate destinations

You'll be able to take up a wide range of positions within the NHS, the Defence Medical Services and other organisations offering pre-hospital and emergency care. Your qualification will also make you eligible to apply for our BSc (Hons) Developing Paramedic Practice programme.
