The HLT31120 – Certificate III in Non-Emergency Patient Transport is a popular qualification required to work in the health care industry, where your role is driving patients to and from medical facilities and their place of residence
Working in patient transport means you’re doing something different every day. You could be assisting a patient who has collapsed at a sporting event and requires off-site medial attention; then you’re back on-road taking patients to a waiting aircraft, where they will be flown to a location where more advanced clinical care is waiting.

This is the appeal of the rapidly-expanding patient transport sector. Every day is different from the next. You get to meet new and interesting people, have amazing conversations, travel to and from different locations; and enjoy a varied working day to keep you interested, stimulated and motivated.

Hands-on experience.

Practical experience transporting real patients is not included in this course. However, you will be driving an ambulance during the 5-day clinical workshop; as well as transporting fellow students who will role-play being  your patient. The driving scenarios help you become skilled at loading and unloading patients in and out of the ambulance – in a safe manner. This is one of the most important parts of the job. The security, safety and comfort of your patient(s) is your number one priority.

To get as much experience under your belt as possible, we recommend doing voluntary work to build your confidence. This is the perfect way to meet companies and organisations who provide patient transport services.
Doing so can help grow your network of employers and dramatically improve your chances of securing work when you complete the course. There are many organisations responsible for coordinating and providing basic First Aid officers through to patient transport activities.

Clinical workshop activities.

The 5-day face-to-face workshop means you get to learn from industry experts and trainers. You’ll also meet other students, work in teams and take part in practical demonstrations and scenarios. You’ll have access to skills stations where you’ll learn how to use and dispose of needles safely and carry out basic patient care. You will have your questions answered by clinically trained and experienced instructors/trainers who are available to take your calls and answer any questions you may have.
