Private Sector Medic/Paramedic Careers Information

Private sector medics – who are they and what do they do?

The private sector emergency response medica is rapidly becoming a popular choice of career for those who don’t wish to go to university, yet they still seek a rewarding career where salaries can exceed $100,000 in the resource and industrial sectors.

Private sector medic’s understand there are immense career opportunities combined with personal freedom to be had by working in this sector. There are plenty of opportunities to up-skill and gain more qualifications to open up further career opportunities and of course, bigger pay packets.

For this reason, private sector medics continually invest in their own education, learning advanced life-saving medical procedures as well as accruing qualifications in safety, mining and construction sectors… for example.

As we briefly mentioned before, to become a medic in the private sector means you don’t have to go to university for 3 years and load up your HECS debt by around $40-60,000 to get a degree.

For instance, entry-level patient transport officer jobs start off at just over $50,000 a year; and for the most part all you need is a Cert III in Non-emergency Patient Transport, or a Certificate IV in Health Care.

If you’re the type of person who likes an action-packed day full of variety and unexpected events, then a career as a private sector medic/paramedic may be just what you’re looking for.
