    Well I've just been shortlisted as a Trainee Ambulance Technician, have the joys now of just waiting for a date for the Assessment Centre.... I know that as long as I have the permission I'll be able to carry on with the valuable work that I do as a Special...so needless to say I have everything crossed. i think it is dependant on the area and force you work for. i work for ambulance control and was an EMD when i joined the Specials and my boss and Lincolnshire Police were fine with this but if i went on the road as a technician or student paramedic it is a definate conflict of interest as you may end up in a position where you have to arrest your own patient! at least that what i was told by a collegue who was a special for a long time and became a student paramedic and had to hang up her cuffs! i think alot of people forget the responsibility you get being a special. you are a special 24/7 - in and out of uniform as soon as you take the attestation, even stuff you do in your personal life could have a detrimental effect on being a special as we were told in our diversity training. i don't think it hit home till then how it effects all areas of your life. anyway enough waffling. hope this helps. to the person who applied for the EMD post:-I hope you got the job. Go to your boss and tell them what you are doing and get them to discreetly check up for you. My boss actually gave me a reference. for the person who has been excepted as a technician:- Well Done you! just check and make sure that it is ok with your force and your new boss. keep smiling!
