Preparing for Paramedicine Preparing for Paramedicine


Are you interested in a career as a Paramedic? Preparing for Paramedicine is our brand new distance learning course aimed at preparing students for their application to UK Paramedic training programs and for the role of Paramedic.

All new UK Paramedics now study at degree level. These are usually science based diplomas or degrees ie - Foundation Degree (FdSc), Bachelors Degree (BSc / BSc Hons). Successful completion of one of these courses allows you to register with the Health & Care Professions council and to work as a registered Paramedic in the UK.

There are many rewarding aspects to being a Paramedic. However, there are are also significant challenges. This course will help you to understand and prepare for these using online interactive learning. That is what makes the Preparing for Paramedicine course unique.

The aim of the course is to allow you to consider the role in more depth and if you then feel this is the career for you, to make your application ‘stand out from the crowd’.

The course is delivered entirely online and you can take up to three months to complete the material.




  By the end of this module, you will be able to:




*  understand the current UK Ambulance Sector


*  demonstrate greater understanding of the Paramedic role


*  understand the learning and educational requirements


*  understand the current Paramedic curriculum in the UK 


*  be better prepared for the interview process


*  prepare for the fitness and driver training requirements



This course is suitable for any person considering a career as a Paramedic in the UK.


Dave Stewart, Educational Consultant & Assessor comments:

"This is a good, solid attractive course, highly detailed & informative, where the quality is demonstrated throughout. It is also a course that clearly sets the learner at the centre and in particular, provides a good pre-recruitment experience for those learners with a desire to become a paramedic."

A former student observed:

"Tony’s feedback was really helpful and brilliant. Maybe an online group discussion with other students as well would have been great. But other than that, it has been a great and wonderful learning experience. I was challenged and impressed. Thank you.” 

Another former learner commented:

"I must say, when I was doing the work I was extremely impressed with the quick feedback and personal response. So very grateful."
