The Paramedic Course That Changed My Life

Before enrolling in a paramedic course in the summer of 2009, Adrian didn’t really know what to do with his life. That decision changed everything and now the 29 year old couldn’t be more excited to wake up every day and go to work.

In his own words he is “living the dream”, gaining recognition from his peers and the community for his heroic efforts with the NSW Paramedic and Ambulance Service. All because he followed his heart and took a paramedic course with the Australian Paramedical College.

After graduating from high school, Adrian succumbed to the pressures of his parents and enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts degree. In just six months he knew that this was not his cup of tea and so he deferred with no intention of returning.

What followed was months of soul searching and days filled with feelings of failure, confusion and a quest for direction. Before discovering the paramedic course that would change it all, all Adrian knew is that he wanted to live to work and not just work to live.

Once he realised that he was born to be in the middle of the action, a caring and compassionate temperament, and an obsession with medical TV dramas like ER, becoming a paramedic seemed the natural choice.

The challenge now was to find out how to become a paramedic? Questions like: What courses do I need take? Do I need to have a degree? Is it going to take me several years just finish my paramedic training?

After discovering the various pathways offered at the Australian Paramedical College and the advantage of online study with flexible schedules, the decision to take a paramedic course was a no-brainer.

After completing the paramedic course – Certificate IV in Healthcare (Ambulance) – and volunteering at his local Surf Life Saving Club, Adrian landed a great job as an assistant paramedic officer. His high work ethic and dedication saw him gain responsibility in rapid time and it wasn’t long before he was offered a scholarship to complete a Bachelor in Paramedical Science.

In just four years, Adrian is now on track to earn a six-figure salary all while do something he is passionate about. He is also making a name for himself in one of the most respected professions in the community.
