An EMT is again a highly trained medic but within the UK this qualification is not accredited through a registered body like other qualifications such as Paramedic, Doctor or Nurse. An EMT would traditionally would work within an ambulance environment and can provide basic life support in emergency situations.
To work as an EMT with Festimed we accept the following qualifications being:
IHCD is the nationally recognised EMT qualification of old by the statutory ambulance services, however more recently this has changed. After much research and discussions the only other qualifications we accept are as above as these are more enhanced qualifications than others with more assignments, total qualification time, learning hours and the course contents are more applicable to the role we require.
Whilst we understand that there are several other courses resulting in the qualification as EMT, we only accept these four.
