Paramedical Science is crucial to the day-to-day care of society. After all, accidents and emergencies can happen at any time, in any location; these courses will provide you with the expertise to work within a range of fast-paced, hands-on situations.
You will be trained in techniques for managing injuries in different environments, from small-scale accidents such as workplace injuries, to large-scale emergencies like car crashes. This could include administering basic first aid, undertaking defibrillation exercises or driving emergency vehicles.
Paramedics are usually placed within the emergency medical services, including the emergency departments of hospitals, and offering assistance on ambulances. They may also specialise in search and rescue in rural areas or offshore via helicopters and boats.
