Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hey, I have recently applied for the TA, just one thing I cant seem to find is whether I am eligible to get into the medical side, I have 2 Alevels in Health and social care plus a few GCSE'S, my ideal career would be combat medical technician.

    Does any body know if this would be possible, I know I have a long way to go but i am 100% determined to do it. Thanks
     
  2. As best as I am aware, no formal academic qualifications are required to join as a CMT, so you shouldn't have any worries. Best of luck!
     
  3. More than qualified I'd say, though I only base that on some of the trainee CMTs I've met in the past.
     
  4. Thanks for that, Im glad to here it, will look into it furthur.
     
  5. Jordan, whereabouts are you signing up ?

  11. Hey, i was looking at going to bham for my TA training, but wolverhampton TA unit says I can train as a gunner (Artillary) aswell as doing a course besides to be a combat medical technician so I get the best of both worlds.
