TEAM MEDIC CADRE

#1
Right, im in need of some assistance here.

When you pass a course or cadre in the army it gives you nvq's and the like but the thing i want to know is, is it the same for the TA?

Ive just passed the Team Medic Cadre so im now a team medic for my deployment but will i be able to use the certificate in civvy street to get a medical type job, or a first aid type of job?

Cheers

If you had been awarded an NVQ on passing your course you would have received a certificate telling you and then yes, you could use it.

But you can still use the fact that you have passed this course on your CV or job application, demonstrating your ability to learn and committment to all things medical.

And not all courses in the regs or TA give you NVQs.

Team medic is just advanced battlefield first aid, and has no relevance in civi street. You can discuss experience in an interview, but it is not a civi qualification

I'm interested in doing this course. Is their rank/time served requirements.

Also, where's it held?

Cheers.
No rank but expect you to have been in a couple of years I sent most of my Pte from my Pl on it before we deployed. You cant have to many medics. Also sent a coouple of guys who were on the Cambrian patrol last year on it so we had the whole medical side sorted for the patrol

NO need to upset the other services by getting a mere stab to set dress standards they would aspire too :twisted:
