    Like if i do the ambulance skills course or whatever in the rdf, is it on any basis with the phecc or does it not transfer across?!

    Thanks
    The DF is recognised by the PHECC as an auxilary CPG-approved service provider but I'm not sure what courses are recognised.

    Be warned there is a lot of to and fro getting paperwork and references etc. My understanding of the Army Ambulance Skills course is that it would not meet the PHECC requirements for EMT level.
    Cheers boomer,

    Trying to decide between medics and navy reserve atm! Tough stuff :D

    As I stated before - ring the DMCs office and state your case. They are the only ones that can give you the correct answer

'Civvy' medics work on a daily basis with their skills facing umpteen different situations in every shift so why in God's name would we or should we have to do an army course to learn how to treat sick and injured people??? Do we all of a sudden loose all knowledge the minute we don DPM's,or naval uniforms???

    I would understand a 'civvy' medic having to do combat medic training alright, but for everything else, well thats just a joke if you ask me.
    that is the army way. You cannot change it. Accept it and go with the flow. The same thing happens to pdf people. Thats the joys!

    Zen! be the tree!!

    does it make it any less rediculous.
    To be "tech graded" having to go to a guy you taught to teach you a course at least 2 levels below the course that you taught him. So that you can then take the test that you have already taken?
    It is a waste of time and effort.

    and terms such as "not in this life".

    Ah I think we are just being sinical.

    Simply ask your Pl officer. When they have stopped laughing and picked themselves up off the ground tell them you are serious. They will pass it up the line.
    Times are changing, especially if you are willing to do intergrated training and overseas. You might prove us old fogies that an old dog can be taught new tricks and that the DF can accept qualifications without inventing barriers.
