Recruitment: Patient Transport Officers

Patient Transport Officer (Student)

The role of Patient Transport Officer (PTO) provides non-emergency patient transport within the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS). PTOs provide a pre-booked non-urgent service, which includes home to hospital transfers, to support the Queensland community.

The QAS provides full training for this role to ensure that patients requiring transport to medical services will have the support of trained professionals in case of need. All PTOs will be supervised, coached and operate independently under close supervision until such time that all studies are completed.

Whilst not mandatory, the possession of a Certificate III in Non-Emergency Client Transport will be highly regarded. Applicants who possess this qualification, and have previous experience in a patient transport role, are required to complete a Recognition of Current Ambulance Practice (ROCAP) assessment at the time of application. To find out more about the ROCAP assessment and what is required in its submission, please refer to the Recognition of Current Ambulance Practice page.

The QAS recruits periodically for PTOs in various locations across the state. To ensure you are kept up to date, you can submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to be considered for future recruitment activities.
