Volunteer Riders are required to have an Advanced Riding Qualification from either I.A.Ms or RoSPA silver grade. We do not differentiate between the two organisations, all we ask is that you go with your preferred trainer.
All prospective riders must also undergo Medicines & Healthcare products
Regulatory Agency (MHRA) training, which Blood Bikes Scotland will provide before riders become a full member of the group.
On becoming qualified you will be required to register with the NHS Flow Centre and receive your official NHS ID Badge. You will then be given a practical induction to the service by shadowing a qualified experienced Blood bike rider for one full shift. This will allow you to familiarise yourself with the practical systems and processes.
At this point in time I.A.Ms training will cost each of us £139 and as soon as I have the information I will let you all know how much RoSPA will cost and then leave the decision to each of you.
