What additional training do I require?
A clean driving licence with the C1 category is highly desirable but not essential. Some organisations offer support for newly registered paramedics to achieve this. Other specific training is dependent upon where the paramedic is employed. Statutory and mandatory training in NHS organisations includes topics such as; Equality, diversity and human rights; Moving and Handling; Safeguarding; Infection prevention and control and Information governance. In NHS organisations training usually consists of corporate and clinical induction programmes to ensure the paramedic understands fully the organisation’s policies and procedures.
