The purpose of this Level 4 Diploma for Associate Ambulance Practitioners is to confirm the learner’s competence in the skills and knowledge you will gain from completing this qualification.

 

The Associate Ambulance Practitioner (AAP) works as part of the wider Emergency & Urgent Care setting, having direct contact with service users or others, providing high quality and compassionate care. Day to day duties and tasks for an AAP would involve working as part of an ambulance crew responding to emergency (999) & urgent calls providing emergency and urgent assistance, driving safely and progressively at high speed.

 

The AAP will assess, treat, and manage service users at the scene or assist with non-conveyance or onward referral if appropriate, reducing the need for hospital admission. Other tasks involve working closely with other emergency services and the wider NHS. Tasks of an AAP will include evaluating different approaches to solving problems, communicating those results accurately and reliably, with structured and coherent arguments.

 

AAP’s work at a level above that of Clinical Healthcare Support Workers and have knowledge of the underlying concepts and associated principles within their area of study, including the ability to evaluate and interpret these. They will have the qualities and transferable skills necessary for employment, exercising some personal responsibility. AAP’s will undertake further annual training and develop new skills within a structured and managed environment when employment is secured.

All placement hours will be provided by NEMC with one of its frontline ambulance providers in the UK, these placement hours will be paid and will include paid accommodation. Upon successful completion the AAP may be accommodated with further hours and positions from our providers dependant on competency shown during placement, once the course is completed the AAP will be accountable for their own actions, operating within their own scope of practice.
