Online courses give you an advantage
With the recent global health crisis, never before has so much interest been generated in learning online. For many people, the thought of isolating themselves means a time to reflect on their current situation, education and work opportunities.
Online study offers so many advantages, as well as some considerations. At APC, the training consists of around 90% online learning, with clinical workshops and placement (work experience).
APC courses are divided into three sections;
- Theory (develop your theoretical knowledge of paramedical concepts)
- Practical (attend clinical workshops and take part in emergency scenario’s)
- Hands-on (supervised clinical placement in the community as a first responder)
As an example, our HLT51015 – Diploma of Paramedical Science qualification is one of the most popular because of the immense employment opportunities, as well as opening the doors to study a paramedicine degree at university.
The diploma is made up of 17 units. Typically, you’d study about 11 units before attending your first clinical workshop (7 days), where you get to apply the knowledge learned in a range of simulated emergency scenarios. Once completed (and you’ve passed the assessments), you’ll start clinical placement in the community; then get right back into online study. When you’ve completed another couple of units, it’s back into the clinical workshops, then out into the community again, then you’re back to online study to complete the remaining units.
Studying online means you receive the same standard of education you would when studying in the classroom. At APC, we offer complete flexibility as to how you study. We’ve even seen some students complete the entire HLT51015 – Diploma of Paramedical Science in 6 months – yes 6 months!
