The knowledge evidence is self-paced. Once the unit has been submitted for assessment and deemed competent, the next unit will be available for completion. The Diploma must be completed within 24 months from commencement. All units, placements, and practical assessments must be achieved in order for the diploma to be awarded. Students complete this course in 12 months on average.

The performance evidence is assessed over two, 6-day blocks and 160-hour placement through Emergency Australia or an approved provider. These 6-day blocks are intensive where we utilise the objective structured clinical examinations (OSCE) to ensure clinical competence. During these workshops, you will be trained and assessed on paramedical skill sets including airway management, stabilisation of trauma patients, interpreting electrocardiograms, drug administration and extraction of patients.

As part of the diploma, it is a government requirement that students complete 160 hours of placement under clinical supervision. This can be conducted with approved private or government medical companies in your local area. Emergency Australia has regular weekend events, which can assist in obtaining the hours of placement.

As Emergency Australian is a Registered Training Organisation, this diploma will gain credits towards the Bachelor of Clinical Practice (Paramedic). This degree is required for those seeking employment with state ambulance services, graduate entry program.
