One of the benefits of studying at this level is that there is not much in your way from taking the first steps 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 maths 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.
If you’re looking to delve a little deeper into the pre-hospital emergency health care sector, the HLT41115 – Certificate IV in Health Care is the qualification one to take notice of. This Nationally Recognised qualification covers health and emergency care in greater depth than Certificate III in Non-Emergency Transport; and requires less study than the HLT51015 – Diploma in Paramedical Science.
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)
Delivered online over a period of 12-18 months, depending on what works for you, this course allows you to immerse yourself in paramedical study without having to give up your daily routine, 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) or the Gold Coast to cement your learning in a clinical environment.
Before attending the workshops, you must complete a number of units before you can apply. This is to allow you to gain the underpinning knowledge of paramedic practice so you are thoroughly prepared and confident you possess the knowledge to be assessed. 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.
This qualification requires you to complete 80 hours of clinical work experience which can be completed with your local event medic contractor, at hospitals and first aid/medical event companies.
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 events will help you build your social skills and allow you to become a masterful communicator.
You’ll also become more aware of your surroundings and have a heightened sense of situational awareness on many levels, not just observing a patient’s body symptoms – more so being acutely aware of your environment and of course your own personal safety.
Paramedicine Online partners with a long list of organisations who provide staff for various events, from deliverers of basic First Aid through to First Responders, Paramedics to Advanced Care Paramedics. As a student studying Paramedics, we will introduce you to these organisations and work with you to best prepare you for your working life after graduating.
The nationally accredited HLT41115 – Certificate IV Health Care will open up many doors for you within the pre-hospital emergency health care sector.
