When I had mine over 1 year ago two people very informal, more of a chat. Wasn't asked any pharmacology questions and can't remember being asked many clinical questions. Cardiac tamponade was one I do remember. Certainly didn't last 45 minutes way shorter, good luck pleasant people.

Hey quibell, are you an ICP as well (or the equivalent for uk or aus)? I am a canadian one and wondering if anyone else has had the conversation on whether or not they will honour our level of training or bridge us to the level etc?

How are we to contact each other if we can't do it on here or on PM?

If you click on the person's username you can email them. Alternatively once a person has 3 proper posts they can access the pm system.

And just to add, if you do have any tips for the interview, it would be much more helpful if you posted them on the forum rather than sharing via PM. That way everybody will benefit from them, including any other paramedics searching the forum in the future.

Thx.

Hi all. I’m an ex uk paramedic working for SAAS. Been here 10 years now. I know how valuable it is to have someone to answer any questions. I definitely won’t have all the answers but I’m happy to try an help out.
Cheers

Hey Tim, yes me and my wife are potentially starting there in November. We are Canadian Paramedics. I tried to pm you but then I realize you don't have pm rights I guess. We have many questions. It would be easier over email or Facebook i think. My email is xxxxxxxxxx" and my name is <snip>. Could you potentially contact me that way or give me your contact info otherwise?

Thanks so much, this would be very helpful to us.

James

The purpose of a forum is to share information for a wider audience.

Some parts of the application process will be general knowledge, which you can share here which will help not only jwt, but also others in a similar situation.

Posting purely to access the pm system is not the way to do it!

Settle down. Old Sparkles is a forum moderator and was just letting you know, as a new member, how the forum and PM system works.
