About this course

Paramedics in the healthcare industry provide rapid, emergency medical response and specialised transportation to the community. The role of a paramedic is varied, and each day a paramedic may respond to a number of call outs. Not all of these will be emergencies, as a paramedic’s work also consists of non-life threatening cases, transporting elderly patients and patients who have scheduled hospital treatments.
