Previously in How to Become a Paramedic/Medic in Just 12-18 Months: Part 1, we looked at the popular HLT41115 – Certificate IV in Health Care paramedic qualification. We also considered the paramedic work and volunteer experience that you can gain while studying at the Australian Paramedical College.

In this article we will be looking at step 3 and 4, in particularly the post-training and job support steps which are critical to your learning.

Think outside the box when looking for Paramedic/Medic employment

When your training has been completed, knowing where to look for the jobs is just as important as having the qualifications themselves. Too many people limit their options when they get to the final stage of how to become a paramedic. While other spend months looking for work, you can land a great job in just a matter of weeks, even days if you know where to look.

State Ambulance Services are not the only employer of Paramedics, in fact there is now significant growth in the private sector. The mining industry, heavy construction and oil and gas industries are constantly in need of trained paramedics. You can often earn a good salary while working in these remote locations and gain valuable experience which will provide you with even more opportunities to do meaningful work down the track.
