Silver and Gold are National levels with gold level also being able to work at international motopr sports events
So what skills can a silver paramedic do compared to a gold????

Is this rating based on qualifcations that the "paramedic" holds or something that you have to do through CAMS to get the star rating.

Back when I was naive enough to think that you needed a CAMS 'paramedic' license to do events at the track, the grading system was mainly based on what you wrote on the application form, so the better you were at selling yourself on the form the higher your rating....

It is a requirement from CAMS that all Paramedics/Officials are licenced to cover them for insurance.

No its never been how you can sell your self.You have had to supply letters of refrence and copies of certificates of Qualification ie I have to provide a Letter from the CEO of St Johns and provide my NSW Air Wing training Course Certificate and my certificate from Care Flight.

Any way you were only from St Jonhs Wanneroos First Aid service and non of their members applied for the licence hence St.Johns got the boot

I don't mean to be a stick in the mud... BUT this topic is about first jobs.... not about qualifications? It's just I keep looking at this topic hoping to see some more shared stories, but am only getting discussion on who/where/what to get the title, etc. Or am I missing something? :?

Don't you hate it when you go to run the red light but the person in front of you doesn't?
