Clinical Workshop Insights

Workshop 1 vs Workshop 2

Preparing students for real-life emergency situations.

Clinical Workshop 1 and Clinical Workshop 2 – what’s the difference?


Simply put, Clinical Workshop 1 focuses on Basic Life Support (BLS) and Clinical Workshop 2 focuses on Advanced Life Support (ALS).

Typically, Basic Life Support refers to processes or protocols that deal with non-life-threatening medical conditions, whereas Advanced Life Support typically deals with medical emergencies. This includes, but is not limited to, advanced airway management, cardiac life support, IV cannulation, intramuscular injections and more.

Both workshops involve emergency scenario training and realistic emergency simulations. This means you, as a pre-hospital clinical student, will be required to attend a simulated emergency. Students must assess the surroundings, attend to the patient, determine the best course of clinical care, and administer treatment.

This type of immersive training helps our students practice doing what they would do in the ‘real world’ on the job.

Both workshops are hosted by our experienced Paramedical Trainers who will guide and support you through various simulated scenarios, advanced medical activities and face-to-face classroom-based lectures.


Australian Paramedical College hosts Clinical Workshops across major cities in NSW, QLD, Vic, WA and Tas. Our main campus is located on the beautiful Gold Coast, QLD. Many of our students opt to travel to our Gold Coast campus as we have a state-of-the-art facility equipped with modern pre-hospital equipment that is used by practising Paramedics.

You can experience world-class training and while having a holiday, why not stay a week after your Clinical Workshop and experience the best that this popular tourist destination has to offer.
