Do you think they would look at a mature student looking to move from NZ to Tasmania?

Tazambo said...

Mike,

Yes.
One of the current group of students is 45+

Hey there

I have a contract as a Paramedic Intern which I have 7 days to sign and return. Just realised I dont know that much about the intern program.

Can you give me any info on it please?

Cheers

Hi Jamie,

I'm not completely up to speed on the graduate (Intern) program.

However my understanding is it takes about 18 months to complete.

You spend time in Hobart (a week or 2 at a time) in the classroom every few months.

The rest of the time is on road with multiple logbooks, CME's, exams, etc to complete.

You could also give someone in the CPEU (training section) a call for some more detailed info (03 6230 8570).

Hope that helps a little.

Regards
Dave

Hey thanks for that Dave, I will give them a call.

Cheers

I have just moved back to Hobart, and I have been looking for this ad, but can not find it, has the job application period closed or is it through until Feb 21 as you blogged? I am 40 yr old and looking for a career change. Thanks for your help and info.

Tazambo said...

andsal,

I wrote that the application process closed Jan 21st.

Sorry about that, not sure how I misread that. Do you know if all the positions have been filled or when the next intake is most likely?

Tazambo said...

Hi andsal,

I just re-read my reply, short and aprupt ?, sorry about that, I was in a hurry.

Mate (I may be wrong asuming your a male) please read the post dated 23rd Feb 2010 (and the comments)(and also the linked post), as it describes the difference between "student paramedics" and "graduate paramedics"

This is the direct link to cut and paste:
http://tassieparamedic.blogspot.com/2010/02/ambulance-tasmanias-newest-recruits.html

This is important as A.T. was planning on only hiring graduates from last Feb onwards, but as the Uni of Tas was not graduating it's first group until Feb 2012 (next year) and they found themselves a little short, they have just advertised for their "last" group of "students".

I'm guessing that from now on, you will need to complete your Uni degree before A.T. hires you on.

I'd suggest that next February 2012 (and advertised in Aug or Sep this year) would be the next intake.

Regards
Dave

Thanks for the info Dave, much appreciated. A pity they have stopped the student paramedic stream. I have only just arrived back in Tasmania after living in remote NT for past 8 years, so missed the last intake. Is there anyone in Ambulance Tasmania worth contacting to see if they have filled all the positions, and if not if they would be willing to receive a late application. Thanks again Andrew

Tazambo said...

Andrew,

I asked about, no late applications and they are filling all current positions with a mix of grads and students.

Sorry mate.

andsal said...

Dave,
Thanks so much for your help and advice. Looking for work to get me through to the end of the year, planning to try and enroll in uni degree next year, also planning to get in with the ambulance volunteers this year to get some insight into the job. thanks again, have a great day. Andrew
