Yes, in initial conversations I was told that my experience would be great for CED, but that I should gain English teaching experience or "Healthcare" experience so that I would be qualified for more roles. However, I want to do CED (Business Development/Advising), so I was a little confused by that response.
Also, I'm curious what you're doing to gain Healthcare experience without prior training? I was told "For Health, we would want to see that you gained 30 hours of volunteer experience working hands on with the patients at a hospital, clinic or hospice. We are unable to accept clerk or administrative work for these hours."
However, even in the major metro area where I live, I'm having trouble finding Health volunteer work that is not administrative or 'comfort care' (playing games, singing, doing art with patients) without any previous experience.
