This could have gone in "jobs - discussion" but I thought that lots of ex RAMC types must go on to work on civvy ambulances. My other half has seen a job she likes the look of as an "Emergency Care Assistant" for an NHS Ambulance service. She currently works as a Nursing Assistant in an A&E department and thought this would be an interesting job to go on to. Thing is, they are asking for a driving licence with C1 classification. This is for vehicles up to 7.5 ton. As she passed her test in 2006 she only has a licence up to 3.5 ton. Does an ambulance really have a MAM (GVW) of more than 3500kg? If not why on earth are they asking for C1? Answers on a postcard etc. etc.
