Whoever said, “It’s my way or the highway”, is just plain wrong when it comes to Emergency Health Care training in Australia. No matter what your goals are, or where you find yourself in life, the Australian Paramedical College can provide you with the most up-to-date emergency health care industry training qualifications. If you have your sights set on becoming an Ambulance Paramedic, we have the solution to that goal, by way of the Diploma of Emergency Health Care.

But first, let’s show you what we mean.

Paramedic degree pathways

In order to become a registered Paramedic in Australia, the must-have qualification is the Bachelor of Paramedical Science (or equivalent) degree. The degree is designed to provide graduates with the skills and knowledge to practice and deliver emergency pre-hospital emergency medical and trauma care. But what happens if you didn’t meet the university entry criteria? Or maybe it’s been a long time since you studied and now you have the time and resources to go back to university? Lastly, perhaps you just simply aren’t prepared to commit to the cost and 3 years full-time study at university.

APC provide educational pathways into university.

The HLT51020 – Diploma of Emergency Health Care is an excellent starting point, for a long and rewarding career in paramedicine. If you have a passion for helping people, want a rewarding career, and love the idea that every day is different, then Emergency Health Care needs YOU!

Each course unit in the diploma prepares you for the daily tasks of a paramedic, which is then complemented by Clinical Intensive Workshops and Clinical Placement, where you are able to practice all your new skills and knowledge in a safe and supervised manner.

The HLT51020 – Diploma of Emergency Health Care provides you with extensive training that will qualify you to work in numerous jobs within the private sector. After immersing yourself in the theory, then learning from the best in your Clinical Intensive Workshops and Clinical Placement, you will never feel under-equipped having completed one of APC’s courses.

Still not quite sure about taking the next step?

You may be more inclined to take baby steps in your learning, by starting small and then continuing on once you’ve built up some confidence in yourself. If that is the case, both the HLT41120 – Certificate III in Non-Emergency Patient Transport and the HLT31120 – Certificate IV in Health Care are excellent stepping stones into this booming career. Complete the certificates first, and use your qualification as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) into the next learning stage, if and when you are ready.

Our students love the ongoing support, flexible learning and thriving online community at the Australian Paramedical College.
