Course summary

Ambulance Clinical Technicians work with paramedics on the frontline of healthcare, looking after those in need and responding to a wide range of situations, from minor wounds and conditions to more serious, life-threatening injuries and illnesses. The course aims to develop students’ knowledge and skills to assess, diagnose, provide basic treatment and assist paramedics in referring patients to the most appropriate care pathway. The theoretical and clinical elements of the course are intended to meet all of the key areas required by the National Education Network for Ambulance Services (NENAS) in order to meet the role specification for Assistant Ambulance Practitioners. The Cert HE Ambulance Clinical Technician Practice has been developed in partnership with East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) and is designed to provide students with the theoretical knowledge, clinical skills, and practical work experience needed to provide high-quality and responsive healthcare whilst working on an emergency ambulance. Ambulance Clinical Technicians help to deliver a broad spectrum of healthcare in a range of situations - from giving lifesaving medical help at the scene of an accident to supporting a patient who is experiencing a mental health crisis.

Additional fee information

For each course students may find that there are additional costs. These may be with regard to the specific clothing, materials or equipment required, depending on their subject area. Some courses provide opportunities for students to undertake field work or field trips. Where these are compulsory, the cost for the travel, accommodation and meals may be covered by the University and so is included in the fee. Where these are optional students will normally (unless stated otherwise) be required to pay their own transportation, accommodation and meal costs. Placements on this course are designed to reflect the scope of modern paramedic practice and may take place in a range of settings within the primary, acute, urgent, community and emergency care environments. Throughout placements, a mentor will support learning and assess competence. Please note that students are responsible for their own travel and accommodation costs while undertaking a work placement. With regards to text books, the University provides students who enrol with a comprehensive reading list and our extensive library holds either material or virtual versions of the core texts that students are required to read. However, students may prefer to purchase some of these for themselves and will therefore be responsible for this cost.
