They will ask why you want to join the ambulance service, team working, problem solving just the usual typical questions asked at an interview.
Any other questions ask away
Hey Nicky,Yeah the bar i found easier! More stability i think!
There was 6 questions canna mind what they were but one i do remember is why you applied? Stuff about communication etc etc the usual stuff
Hey, this has made me feel slightly more at ease knowing there is a bar option. Is there the dumbbells to or is it one or the other? I'm praying my test on Saturday has a bar as I don't find the weight heavy but I'm struggling with the gripping! xHi Nicky, fitness test was fine, not as bad as it seems. 1st off you're asked to repeat back 3 sentences, there are key words within them that they want to hear back. It was really easy to be honest, then you do 2 mins on step with 2 x 5kg weights to a metronome, this is more a warm up then 2 mins chest compressions, then a manual dexterity test which was to connect a bag and mask to oxygen bottle then change the mask and switch oxygen on, they show you 1st then talk you through it step by step. Then the biggy, 3 mins on step with 2 x 15kg weights to a metronome. For this just train and build up to the weight. I held the weights up at my shoulders with my arms bent, locked in and you then dont have any problems with you're grip. You can wear gloves or bring talc too. If you train for it you'll be able to do it. Then after that its 2 sentences to repeat back and then that's you. We did a similar test for ACA job too.
Just let me know if I can help you any further.
