As part of our requirements with a number of our accrediting organisations, as well as a legal requirement in certain cases, we are required to have Garda Vetting completed for all relevant staff and students, before they commence employment/classes with us.

While you may already be Garda Vetted as part of your work and/or involvement with other organisations, Garda Vetting is currently still organisation-specific and therefore needs to be completed for us. The Garda Vetting Office have moved to the e-Vetting System, so the process may be slightly different to what you were previously used to.

The process is:

 -   Initial Steps: 
   -   Complete the Vetting Invitation Form (NVB 1), when it is provided to you, using the guidelines in the included at the start of the form.
   -   We need to have on file “Evidence of Identification”. This involves meeting the identification requirements which will be outlined to you in advance of your Garda Vetting application.
 -   Next Stage: 
   -   Once we recieve the  completed application form, checklist and accompanying evidence, we will assess the paperwork. 
   -   Provided the documentation is correct, we will process the application. 
   -   Applications are processed through a third-party - the National Recruitment Federation (NRF). 
   -   Once processed by the NRF, you will then receive an email from the Garda Vetting Bureau, inviting you to complete the rest of the process online. 
   -   There is a strict deadline of thirty days after which the invitation will expire and the process will have to recommence (involving additional costing), so you must go online and complete the process as soon as possible after receiving the invitation. 
   -   Once you have completed the online process, your Garda Vetting application will be processed by the National Vetting Bureau (NVB) of An Garda Siochana. 
 -   Disclosure Stage: 
   -   Once your Garda Vetting Application has been processed, you will be sent a notification by the NVB that your disclosure is ready. 
   -   Your disclosure is then sent to us, via the NRF. 
   -   Once we receive your disclosure, it will be reviewed and the process will then be complete. 
   -   Should there be any queries regarding the contents of the disclosure, we will contact you to discuss same. 

 

Should you require any additional information on any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact us at training@medicall.ie or phone 014966933 - Option 2.

We also ask that, during the Garda Vetting application process, should you encounter any difficulties/problems/issues at any stage, you make contact with us straight away so that we can work with to resolve matters promptly.

With the growing focus on the area of Continuing Professional Competence (CPC) for PHECC-Registered EMTs over the last few months, we have updated our information page for our CPC Education Programme for EMTs.      

 

Programme Aim: This programme has been specifically designed to fulfil all aspects of the PHECC Continuous Professional Competency annual requirement. One of the key aspects of the programme is to enable EMTs who are not working in the field to comply with the PHECC CPC requirements.

 

Programme Structure: The programme consists of multiple phases/sections. These sections are:

 -   Clinical Placements:   
   -   Candidates will be entitled to a minimum of four shifts on one of the state-of-the-art ambulances in our nationwide fleet.  
   -   The guarantee is effectively the longer of the following:  
     -   Four clinical placement shifts 
     -   Twelve patient contacts 
     -   i.e. - if you reach twelve patient contacts on your third shift, you will still be able to avail of the fourth shift. However, if at the end of your fourth shift, you have only reached ten patient contacts, then you will be offered further shifts to ensure that you reach the required twelve patient contacts. 


 

 

 -    CFR-A Training: 
   -   Each year, you need to show evidence of CFR-A training 
   -   This will be either certification or recertification in even years, or retention training in odd years 
   -   Our programme will include the required CFR-A training 


 -    CPGs Currency: 
   -   You are required to show evidence that you have completed training to the current version/edition of the PHECC CPGs for your clinical level 
   -   This would be either via Upskilling (if you qualified prior to the release and implementation of the latest CPGs) or via original EMT certification (if you qualified after the release and implementation of the latest CPGs) 
   -   Should a new version/edition of the CPGs be released either while you are actively participating in the CPC Programme or else in the twelve months prior to you joining the programme, you will be given a place on one of our Upskilling Courses 


EMT CPGs 2017 cover Mini

 -    Mentoring: 
   -   While on clinical placements, you will be mentored by our crew members, so this requirement will be fulfilled 
 -    Reflective Practice Document/Case Study: 
   -   While on clinical placements, our crew members will assist you in identifying patients/situations which can be used for creating the two documents that you need to have each year 
 -    Self-selected Options: 
   -   The programme includes one of our advanced/specialist courses. These specialist advanced courses generally take place on either Saturdays or Sundays, or both days for two day courses. Each of these courses will give you at least 8 CPC Points, which is the minimum that you require each year.
