In Conversation | Kacey Middleton

From Volunteer to Aspiring Paramedic

As an outdoors person who loves surfing and fishing, Kacey decided to get into volunteering to help her community with St John WA. This sparked her interest in healthcare and eventually inspired her to explore studying to become a paramedic. 

Kacey decided to start her journey with APC because it was the best option for her having not studied for a while since she’d finished school. She’s gone on to successfully complete her Diploma and is now a university student following her dream!

In Conversation | Tyler Franklin

From PT to Paramedicine

Tyler became a Personal Trainer (PT) straight out of school and while she had always considered studying paramedicine, questioned if she was smart enough to do it. It wasn’t until she discovered she could study the emergency health care with APC that she decided to give it a go!

If you are struggling or you need a bit more assistance, give them a call. They’re always there“, she shared of her APC experience.

The Diploma has given Tyler so much confidence that she is now considering doing a Paramedicine and Nursing double degree!
