Graduate Diploma Qualifications

Entry to these programs requires that students be already qualified in another health discipline, generally nursing, and have recent practical experience. These pre-requisites are specified by the Universities concerned and details are available on their websites. Students undertaking these qualifications should check with individual ambulance services regarding their recruitment policies.

The CAA acknowledges that a number of other Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers also offer Certificate and Diploma level courses in paramedic studies. While these courses may have been developed to meet select third party employer needs, they are not recognised by CAA member jurisdictions for the purposes of employment as an entry-level paramedic.

Prospective students seeking to undertake these programs for the purposes of employment as an ambulance paramedic with an Australian or New Zealand ambulance service are advised to seek specific advice on the extent to which, or if any, recognition may be applicable toward potential employment prior to commencing these programs.
