Why take a vocational pathway to your Paramedic Career

Students who complete this vocational pathway will be entitled to claim advanced standing or recognition of prior learning (RPL) to gain entry into state based ambulance services like the Ambulance Service of NSW or university to complete a Bachelor of Paramedic Studies. This vocational pathway will lead to significant savings in fees and you can work and gain experience as you study.

The recent changes to these courses are significant and will make the courses simpler to deliver which should make it easier to upgrade your training and be cheaper for students.
