We can help you to become a paramedic because education 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, HLT31115 – Certificate III in Non-emergency Patient Transport, HLT41115 – Certificate IV in Health Care and the HLT51015 – Diploma of Paramedical Science provide entry points to work as a private sector medic/paramedic or use these qualifications to gain entry into university.

At various stages of training, face-to-face clinical workshops and competency reviews are delivered in locations around Australia. Participating in realistic clinical assessment and scenario training activities, thoroughly prepare our students for what lies ahead.

Every student of the College has access to support via our student success officers, clinical instructors and educators and learning support team.

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.

Our students also benefit from a vibrant and engaging 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.
