e-Learning for Healthcare Paramedics Project

Have you just started or returned to university studying Paramedic Science?  Are you starting work as a paramedic for the first time, or an experienced paramedic looking to refresh and update your knowledge?  The College of Paramedics – e-Learning for Healthcare sessions aim to support individuals applying theory into practice, wherever you work.
 
Gary Strong, National CPD Lead, College of Paramedics commented,
"Quick and easy to access and produced by paramedics for paramedics, these sessions are invaluable for refreshing knowledge and applying learning in practice. They can be used by students to support their studies, newly qualified paramedics to reinforce their learning, or experienced paramedics for revision, and all who work alongside paramedics to develop applied clinical knowledge".
