Joining the RAMC

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Soldier Recruitment' started by LeviM, Apr 20, 2017.

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. Hi, I'm about to apply to join the Army and I'm interested in the RAMC. I have two questions:

    If I join, can I join to be a CMT or could I just end up being pinged to do something else?
    And, what kind of civvie quals do you get from joining the corps? Would I be able to leave my career in the army and become a paramedic or something similar or would I have to do additional schooling, etc?

    And any other info regarding the job and training would also be welcomed, thanks!
  2. You're better off asking the Army careers office these kind of questions.

    Yes you can join as a CMT. If that is the job you are accepted for then that is the trade you will be trained for.

    A CMT is not Paramedic qualified so further 'schooling' as you put it will be required to become a qualifies Paramedic.
  4. Thank you for the reply, much appreciated.
