Paramedic Courses – Why Are There So Many?

As you search for paramedic courses we’re sure you have wondered why there seems to be so many different levels of qualification. It would be so much easier if there was just one paramedical, prehospital emergency health care course… however that is not the case.

Paramedic Courses to Suit Your Needs

First of all, we all must be mindful that we are all different, with different needs, goals and interests. Here at Australian Paramedical College our education team have spent years improving our paramedic courses to suit the needs of all individuals who have aspirations of a developing a successful paramedical career.  This also involves the different job functions in the private sector (medic, First Responder, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), as well as those in the public sector (Ambulance Paramedic)

The APC team understands not everyone has the same amount of time to dedicate to their studies, so we have designed flexible learning into our paramedical courses.

We are also acutely aware that your time is valuable. That is why most of the paramedic course learning materials are completed online through our learning portal. Throughout the training, there are small blocks of hands-on practical training which means attending clinical workshops at various locations in QLD, NSW, VIC and W.A.

You can also take your skills and qualifications with you, should you want to move interstate or even work overseas. The possibilities are endless.

Whether you have aspirations to earn a good  salary as an Ambulance Paramedic, or simply want to volunteer with your local SE or ambulance service, we have paramedic courses to prepare you for a career in the private sector, as well as preparing you for entry into university to study the Bachelor of Paramedic Science, which is required when your goal is to become an Ambulance Paramedic.
