What to Expect From Your Training


Entry level paramedical training

If you’re looking to delve a little deeper into the health care industry, the Certificate IV in Health is your answer. Certificate IV covers health and emergency care in greater depth than Certificate III in Non-Emergency Transport and requires less of a commitment of time than the Diploma in Paramedical Science.

If you decide you want to go further and complete the Diploma, you can always upgrade later.


Online and face to face training

Delivered online over a period of 6-12 months, depending on what works for you, this course allows you to immerse yourself in study without having to give up your daily routine.

It includes a two-week intensive in Melbourne, Sydney or the Gold Coast to cement your learning in a face-to-face setting and requires 80 hours of clinical experience that can be completed with local event medic contractors, hospitals and medical suppliers to complete the qualification.
