All courses are free for members

The College provides members with hundreds of free online courses to assist you with professional development. You can filter and search for courses of interest, plus “like” courses so you can find them easily in the future.

All the courses are designed to help you meet the requirements of paramedic registration, so they automatically include self reflection, and when completed they are added to your learning record in the ACP portal.

Non-members can view a small selection of workshops for free (try before you buy), view all other workshops at a cost, or simply join to access all the content for free. Learn about Membership here.
