We don’t believe becoming a paramedic should be exclusive

At the Australian Paramedical College, we believe everyone can achieve great things when they set their mind to it, no matter what their educational background.

We provide an opportunity for ordinary Australians to become paramedics by delivering a clear educational plan by way of our unique 4 Step Paramedic Pathway Program.

Our pre-hospital emergency health care training qualifications, HLT31115 – Certificate III in Non-emergency Patient Transport, HLT41115 – Certificate IV in Health Care and the HLT51015 – Diploma of Paramedical Science provide entry points into the private sector or into university.

At various stages of the training, face-to-face clinical workshops are delivered in locations around Australia. Realistic clinical assessment and scenario training activities thoroughly prepare our students for life in the field.

From a student support perspective, the College has highly experienced trainers on staff who are themselves paramedics. Every student has access to unlimited support via our student support, coaching and mentoring programs.

Given the challenging environment paramedics find themselves in day in, day out, the College has developed a unique Emotional Intelligence for Paramedics program. This will equip every student with the skills to effectively manage challenging, emotional and stressful situations.

Students also benefit from our private facebook group, where they meet other students, create their own study groups and inspire one another to succeed.

We are dedicated to delivering better equipped paramedics to the industry.
