It would be unfair to expect that spending three years studying full-time at a university be suitable for everyone. In fact, I would argue that in today’s day and age, the university approach to learning, though valid, is not the best learning approach for many people. University paramedic courses are no different.
Paramedical Courses: University may not be for everyone
There are gifted men and women – young and old – that simply don’t have the time or aptitude to complete a three-year university degree. Whether it is a young single-mum that needs to work her part-time job in order to provide for her family. Maybe it’s a young man fresh out of high school, but is not sure that he wants to spend $60,000+ and three years of his life on a career choice that he is not 100% convinced he wants to pursue.
There are many people who need a flexible approach to learning and simple cant afford the straight up expense that a university degree gives them. There are others who don’t learn in a university environment (I am one of them), and to dictate to them that a three-year university degree is the only way is just wrong.
Paramedical Courses that are flexible at the Australian Paramedical College
That is why the Australian Paramedical College has designed their paramedical, pre-hospital emergency health care courses to be flexible, affordable and effective. Their paramedic courses are nationally recognised and eligible for recognised prior learning (RPL) awards should you decide latter on to complete a Bachelor of Paramedical Science.
When it comes down to it, there are so many reasons why considering the paramedical training courses offered by the Australian Paramedical College (APC) is a common sense alternative to the expensive university approach. As an APC student you have much more flexibility in your schedule to work while you study. You can also gain the much needed paramedic experience that is critical to secure that paramedic job.
