APC’s HLT51020 – Diploma of Emergency Health Care students and HLT41120 – Certificate IV in Health Care students can only commence Clinical Placement once they have completed at least 10 units of theory, and have been assessed and deemed satisfactory at their Clinical Workshop/s.
You can review each course’s units of competency in the graphic below:
To review the scope of practice of a graduated APC student, please refer to the below links:
APC students on Clinical Placement are required to be clinically supervised at all times by someone holding either a Certificate IV/Diploma or above in a health-related discipline*.
Students are required to have their own transport to and from the event, accommodation (if required), and personal equipment (such as a stethoscope etc.) for their shift. As their host organisation, you are required to provide all of the equipment to provide basic/advanced life support.
*Students studying the HLT41120 – Certificate IV in Health Care are required to be supervised by someone holding a Cert IV or above. Students studying the HLT51020 – Diploma of Emergency Health Care are required to be supervised by someone holding a Diploma or above.
APC have students located across the nation looking to conduct their Clinical Placement. Whilst it can depend on their availability and notice provided, students are available at all times.
Students are covered up to $30 million in Public Liability and $30 million in Professional Indemnity insurance as a volunteer and a paid worker. As a volunteer they are also covered in the case they sustain an injury during placement.
APC students are there to help, not hinder on placement. Having a student on Clinical Placement is providing you with another set of hands on deck for free.
We require supervisors to clinically supervise students at all times on placement, and sign off on their clinical logbook at the end of each shift as a reflection of their support. Each logbook has skillsets from the HLTOUT004 and/or HLTOUT005 units of competency.
For supervision requirements, please refer to “What do I need to provide a student on Clinical Placement?“
APC is committed to supporting not only students but also our Industry Partners for Clinical Placement.
If there are issues on Clinical Placement, whether it is providing the required hours, and skillsets or the student isn’t working out, you can get in touch with APC to discuss the best plan of action to go forward.
