What happens if I am successful

If you are successful in the recruitment process, you will be offered a position as a Trainee Ambulance Technician at one of our stations. 

The first 10 weeks of your employment will be spent at the Scottish Ambulance Service Academy, based at Glasgow Caledonian University, studying the Certificate of HE in Ambulance Studies. You will also be expected to complete a three week Emergency Response Driving course and a week's induction.

Once you have successfully completed this part of the course, you will be out on the road with a paramedic for a full year as a Trainee Technician. At the end of this year, once you have passed all of the elements of the course, you will become a Qualified Ambulance Technician.
