Staff at the various emergency services for emergency assistance

Nurses and paramedics need a badge to identify them when they go out in a regular ambulance or a PIT ambulance. This allows them to be easily identified in the performance of their duties. The badge can be obtained by holding a valid licence.

  • Paramedics can obtain this licence by taking training at the provincial training centres, passing the exams and having a positive internship report.
  • Nurses can also obtain a licence, but are exempted from part of the training at the provincial training centres. Nurses with a special professional title of emergency and intensive care don’t need to take any additional training in order to obtain a badge.
  • No badge and therefore no licence are required to perform the MUG/SMUR function.
