We are proud to announce our new partnership with Soldier On, a non-profit organisation that supports the learning and employment pathways of Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and veterans through its Pathways Program. The partnership aims to help veterans transition into meaningful and fulfilling careers in the healthcare sector.
As an Education Partner, Australian Paramedical College (APC) will provide entry pathways to Soldier On participants for nationally recognised training courses in pre-hospital emergency health care. The courses offered include the HLT51020 – Diploma of Emergency Health Care, HLT41120 – Certificate IV in Health Care, and HLT31120 – Certificate III in Non-Emergency Patient Transport. These courses will equip veterans with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the pre-hospital emergency healthcare industry.
“We are thrilled to partner with Soldier On and support their mission of empowering veterans to reach their full potential,” said Australian Paramedical College Director, Stephen Booth. “As a leading provider of pre-hospital emergency health care training, we believe that our courses will provide veterans with the skills they need to transition into a rewarding career in the healthcare sector.”
The partnership is a part of APC’s commitment to supporting the veteran community and providing quality education and training to individuals looking to pursue a career in the healthcare industry. “We understand the unique challenges that veterans face when transitioning to civilian life,” said Stephen. “Through our partnership with Soldier On, we hope to make that transition easier by providing veterans with the education and training they need to succeed in their chosen career.”
Dave Waters, National Program Director at Soldier On welcomes the initiative. “Upskilling through civilian ready qualifications in enriching and supportive environments is a key focus area within the Soldier On Pathways Program”, he said.
“Soldier On’s collaboration with Educational Partners such as Australian Paramedical College is at the heart of being able to enable veterans and their families to thrive”, said Prue Slaughter, Deputy CEO of Soldier On.
Soldier On highlights the importance of providing education and training opportunities to veterans, and how it can make a positive impact on their lives. APC looks forward to working closely with Soldier On and supporting veterans in their transition to the healthcare sector.
