HLT41115 – Certificate IV in Health Care

This qualification has been superseded by the HLT41120 – Certificate IV in Health Care. Paramedicine Online can help you to become an emergency out-of-hospital medic.

Entry requirements for the Certificate IV

This qualification has been superseded by the new and improved HLT41120 – Certificate IV in Health Care.

One of the many social and personal benefits of studying this qualification is that there is not much in your way from taking the first step to changing your life.  and making your application to study and find out more about how you can do this training from home.

Paramedical study means you will have to work hard to learn the concepts of anatomy, biology, human body systems, a little bit of math, English and other concepts such as working with different cultures, being aware of your legal obligations, medical terminology and life-saving medical procedures. A big part of your job as a medic or paramedic is communication and empathy for others who need it the most.

If you have a reasonable command of English and Math and can read and write, you can apply to study this course.

This qualification has been approved by ASQA, (Australian Skills Quality Authority), training.gov.au, the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and follows the criteria set down by the Australian Core Skills Foundation.

What to expect from your training

If you’re looking to develop an amazing and long career in out-of-hospital emergency health care , the new Certificate IV in Health Care is the qualification is a great place to start. This Nationally Recognised qualification covers health and emergency care in greater depth than Certificate III in Non-Emergency Transport;  (superseded by the HLT31120 – Certificate III in Non-Emergency Patient Transport) and requires less study than the HLT51015 – Diploma in Paramedical Science. (superseded by the HLT51020 – Diploma of Emergency Health Care)

If you decide you want to go further and complete the diploma, you can always upgrade at a later stage. (This is a very popular option)

Online study, with face-to-face clinical workshops and work experience

Delivered online over a period of 12-18 months (can be completed sooner if full-time study is chosen), this qualification allows you to immerse yourself in paramedical study without having to change your current , or if you are currently working, it means you can keep on earning and work towards changing or upgrading your career.

It includes a 7 day clinical workshop in VIC (Melbourne area), NSW (Sydney Location), Western Australia (Perth) or the Gold Coast to cement your learning in a clinical environment.

Before attending the workshops, you must complete at least 110-11 units of competency online before you can attend these workshops.  The workshops are a pivotal moment in your training, because it is here you get to meet and bond with other students just like you, sharing the same passion, interest and goals to help save lives and give something back to their community. At the workshops you’ll work in teams as well as independently to tackle many different scenarios you will encounter in the real world. The training is designed to be realistic and authentic as possible, including working outdoors in all weathers at different locations. You may find yourself attending to a patient who has fallen in a stream, carefully treating a patient (or two) trapped in a car, saving a toddler’s life and treating a patient who’s parachute malfunctioned and they have plummeted to the ground – yet survived.

Hands-On work experience?

This qualification also requires you to complete 80 hours of clinical work experience (field placement), which can be completed with your local event medic contractor, at hospitals and first aid/medical event companies. Whilst every effort is made to help you gain essential clinical placement, we do encourage you to also make your own enquiries and develop your network. The 80 hours clinical work experience will put you in direct contact with the public, where you will experience first-hand what it’s like to be the one person so many people depend on.

This invaluable experience will fill you with confidence and put the theory you have learned into practice. Event medic companies are great places to work. Being out in the public eye and dealing with unexpected incidents will help you build your social skills and allow you to become a masterful communicator.

Whilst completing the clinical placement, you’ll also become more aware of your surroundings and possess a heightened sense of situational awareness. This is where you’ll be able to multi-task and observe your patient’s body symptoms whilst being acutely aware of your environment and of course your own personal safety and the safety of your partner.
