Training for Life

To enable you to contribute to your community, as a volunteer you will develop skills that will stay with you for life.

There are no prerequisites to becoming a Volunteer Ambulance Officer. You don't even need to know first-aid. We will provide all the training you need.

Volunteers work their way through a series of modules – courses specifically developed by Ambulance Tasmania for the training of Volunteer Ambulance Officers

New volunteers attend the five day Volunteer Induction Program which is usually run over three weekends. We offer these courses three times a year in each of our three regions.  During this course you take an advanced first-aid course and learn about ambulance equipment and operations.

After your initial training, you will be required to attend regular training once a month at your assigned station. Some stations offer additional training sessions.

You will also learn by working on-road with more experienced officers, attending ambulance cases.

There are also opportunities to get together with your colleagues from other stations at the Annual Volunteer Workshop held in each region, and at the Volunteer Association's annual conference usually held each November.
