CMT

#1
Hello
I hope someone can help me with a question I have.
I am looking to join as a CMT and was wondering is there possibilities to take courses and advance up to nursing?

Thanks in advance :)

yes.
German equivalents. But not enough for nursing as you need 5 C's incl. maths, English (which I have) and Science (which is a D unfortunatly).
I doubt I will have a chance to gain entry as a Student nurse.

You should also be aware that we have cut student numbers to 30 per year so competition will be pretty tough.
Is it a requirement to satisfy the selection board that suitable individuals can neither pass or finish a fitness test to be successful? or is that part of Nurse training in Birmingham, to develop such skills? :D

What school did you go to Haupt or Realschule?
As apparently Haupt is GCSE equivalent and real is equivalent A levels.

According to a company (advised by a Collage) that translates educational certificates translated my Hauptschule zeugnis as GCSE equivalents.

Well If I was you I would still check yourself just incase though, like I said thats what I was told and have got it in writting. If you go to your local collage and just confirm they are GCSE equivalents.
I used to live in Germany mate as me dad is ex army and used to be stationed over there. Long story but mums german, parent seperated and lived with me mum till I was 20 and came back to the uk. :p
How bout you?

well im starting as a combat medic first im jsut interested for later as theres no civvy quals for combat medic
same like u but my dad was out when i was born both parents still work for the army as civvys
i applied for the bundeswehr first but they just turned their back on me and said i could just do national service but couldnt join up as a "berufssoldat" because if just got a hauptschul qualification so my dad said theres a recruiting office for the british army in germany why dont u apply there so i applied and now im nearly in just a couple of days to go
thats my story lol
im quite happy that i made the decision for the british army because theyve got a much longer history and tradition and u dont have to be ashamed that your proud to fight for your country as if got a feeling u do in germany

thx mate
the barb test shouldnt be a problem thats easy and adsc is a pieve of piss too as long as you keep fit and talk on the team tasks youll smash it trust me!!!
the worst thing is the long wait when your joining up as a medic like i did i passed selection in may... most people from my selection passed out of training allready

Not too bothered about the BARB.

Have you had that yet? and whats it all about?
