You might be wondering what our training facility is like. What sort of equipment, facilities and resources are available for students at clinical workshops.
In the above tour video, we take a look inside APC HQ – our state-of-the-art training facility in Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
We’re so proud of the next-level training experience it offers our students. The main training room provides plenty of space for students to learn and practice emergency health care skills with all the equipment paramedics and medics use, like oxygen and trauma bags, ECG monitors and defibrillators, stretchers, stair chairs, combi carriers and more.
These aren’t just training equipment, but the exact equipment and brands used and fitted in state ambulances and professional emergency service operations.
There are two dedicated scenario rooms, an injection station, an airway management station, and university-level simulation manikins that take practical scenarios to the next level.
And right at the centre of things, our simulated ambulance, which allows students to practice getting patients in and out of an ambulance on stretchers before we head outside to the real thing.
Outside, we have three “practice” ambulances that students will learn their way around and of course drive, during clinical workshops. They are fully fitted and as close to a real ambulance vehicle as possible.
Just off the training room is our lecture room where trainers revisit online material, facilitate discussion and go more in-depth with knowledge relevant to workshop skills.
Just as importantly, our facility also provides students with a kitchen complete with refreshments, a vending machine, and facilities to store and prepare their own meals.
There’s also a great café on-site and a large shopping centre just over the road with a huge range of food options.
Finally, did you know we have a dedicated media studio on-site where we produce video and audio content to support our students online learning experience? A testament to APC’s dedication to bringing innovative and engaging online learning to the emergency service workers and paramedics of tomorrow.
We’re so proud of the training ground we’ve created here for the skilled and passionate emergency health workers of tomorrow. If you’re interested in being one, apply today and we’ll see you here soon!
