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 develop their Health Care and Paramedic foundational skills through accredited training with Australian Paramedical College.

Our pre-hospital emergency health care training qualifications, 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.

Every student has access to support via our student success officers, trainers, assessors and learning support manager.

Given the challenging environment paramedics find themselves in day in, day out, the College has a specialist learning support manager whom students can have one-on-one appointments with via phone or face-to-face. This service helps support students as they navigate through managing challenging, emotional and stressful situations during their course.

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.
