Yes – this is one of the most amazing things about studying with the College.
We realise that online study can be a little challenging for some, so we got together with our students and created an online student hangout on Facebook. This is a private group that is reserved for students only. It’s exactly what you’d expect, a place where everyone jumps on and gets to know one another.
Just belonging to this community means you get to ask questions about your course and learn from others who are further down the road in their studies.
The student Facebook group is also the place where our paramedic service providers reach out to our students and offer work experience attending events, concerts and public meetings etc. You could easily find a paying gig this way. Another big bonus of the Facebook group is students who live close to one another arrange to meet up at coffee shops and each others houses to form there own ‘study buddy’ groups. Again – collaborating is one of the best ways to learn.
Our paramedic trainers also hang out on the Facebook student group so you you can questions if you need help with an assessment – they’ll jump right in and give you guidance and direction when you need it most.
Last but far from least – we often surprise our students with little quizzes to test their knowledge – this keeps everyone on their toes and stimulates some great discussion. You can be sure that you’ll always be part of a big online learning community when you choose to study with the College.
The Australian Paramedical College is the largest pre-hospital health care training provider in Australia.
We offer three courses in the health scope:
Our nationally recognised paramedical training programs provide a flexible and affordable pathway to employment in the private sector, or as a stepping stone to university. We offer everyone the opportunity to become a Paramedic/Medic, regardless of their educational background. We believe you should still pursue your goals even if your school or college grades are not where they should be.
We live in an era where anything is possible when you put your mind to it. With advances in technology and learning methodologies, there is no reason why you can not follow your dreams and become a person who can save lives and contribute to the well-being of the community.
