Over a monthly period, once all training is complete, we would expect a minimum of 4 hours training time (2 hours a night) to keep up your skillset.

Frequency and commitment details

There is no minimum commitment to the organisations. Whilst we invest in you, we will always work with you when your circumstances change (perhaps stating college or university) to try and give you the flexibility to keep volunteering with us.

Restrictions

Unfortunately, our two restrictions are as follows: 1) You must be physically fit in order to deliver medical care. 2) Due to insurance purposes and the nature of some of the events covered, we cannot accept applications from anyone under 16.
Experience required: No skills are needed as we'll teach you everything you need to know. We only ask that you're willing to learn and have a fun, friendly approach to life.
Travel details: This awesome opportunity happens across the whole of Northern Scotland; from Stonehaven to Aberdeen; Fraserburgh to Elgin; Inverness to Wick. Currently, we are located in Elgin and training will happen here, however, there are options to take part in online sessions to save traveling. When covering events, transport and food may be provided if not we have an expenses policy to cover costs.
