    "quote" The Army Medical Services have begun a new partnership with the civilian world to help train its soldiers.

    Sixty experienced medics have taken part in a pilot scheme to teach them about clinical situations they wouldn’t come across in military life.
    As well as learning new skills, they’ve earned a professionally recognised qualification.

I was under the impression that the university course for CMT's class 1 on completion, would allow work within the NHS as a qualified EMT , my comment of excellent news, was a knee jerk comment, regarding CMT's trade being recognised nationally.
