Credit transfer

Credit Transfer into Paramedical courses with Australian Paramedical College

What is Credit Transfer?

Could your previous qualifications help get you into a paramedical course?

Credit transfer is a process that recognises the units of competency you have already attained.
It is not the same as Recognised Prior Learning where your work history, skills and abilities are taken into account. Credit transfer examines the units of competency you have already achieved, the relevancy of them and that you can also provide physical proof completion.
We get enquiries from people who are working in a variety of jobs and are now looking for a new challenge in life. They love the idea of becoming a paramedic, but do not want to start all over again re-learn what they already know.

How does ‘credit transfer’ work?

How it works is pretty straight forward.

  1. Find the units of competency in the list below
  2. Add them to the form on this page
  3. Send the form details to us

We will assess your previous qualification or subject achievements to determine whether they can be credited to one of the courses you want to enrol in.

The benefit of credit transfer

The benefit of qualifying for credit transfer with the Australian Paramedical College is you can save valuable study time by NOT repeating the units you have already attained. This also has the added bonus of lightening your study load and leaving you with more free time to learn new and challenging skills.
By enrolling in a course and being credited in recognition of your prior achievements increases your educational choices and career opportunities.
This means wiping months of extra study off the agenda; bringing you closer to your goal of becoming a paramedic in a shorter time frame.

What to do next…

If you can see the unit codes you have already got in the table below – then you may be able to credit transfer those units.
The big list below contains all of the units of competency that can be found in our Cert IV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses.
Many students enrol in the three courses at the same time, because of the amount of money they save and the shorter time frames required to complete the training.

  1. Go through the list and look for those units you already have
  2. Copy each one into the form below. (you’ll copy the code into the ‘Qualifications gained’ box)
  3. Keep going through the list below until you have added all of the codes to the form
  4. Add your contact details

If you do not want to go through the process of filling out the form, no problem. Call (07) 5520 2522 and speak to one of the credit transfer specialists.
When you’ve finished adding the codes, send the information to us and we will give you a call as soon as we can.
Make sure you give us your correct phone number.
