What you need to become a Volunteer with Ambulance Victoria

  • You must be 18 and over.
  • You must have a current drivers licence (Probationary is fine)
  • You will be required to undergo a driving check and police check.
  • Every ACO and CERT must make themselves available for a minimum of 20 hours per month on call.
  • Ongoing continual vocational training is conducted monthly and this is a requirement.
  • You must be prepared to undertake, complete and pass the initial course of approximately 100 hours (includes driver training).
  • You will be required to pass a basic literacy assessment. Communication is a huge part of the role.
  • There is no restriction on ACOs living within the town as ACOs have a branch and can commit to their on call time at the branch.
  • There is a restriction for CERTs to live within 8 km of the CERT town as they do not have a branch building.

Ambulance Victoria Volunteer Operational positions are not always available and although we will pass on the contact details for the relevant Branches you have requested, there may not always be places available. We will however, ensure you are contacted by our Volunteer Services team within 21 days of your enquiry. Student Paramedics who volunteer are not always guaranteed a position on completion of their studies, although those who do will be looked on favourably in the future.
