Continuing Professional Development

The College is the leading provider of high quality continuing professional development workshops, conferences, online learning and other activities for paramedics and student paramedics in Australia and New Zealand. We complement the training and support offered by ambulance services and create learning opportunities for paramedics working in private industry, the military, rural/outback locations and other areas to access CPD content to maintain and improve their existing skill base.

Online Courses

The College provides members with a selection of hundreds of online workshops and presentations, with content regularly added. The wide range of online courses from our conferences and education evenings provides you with the opportunity to learn from home, or on the go, at a time that suits you. Non-members can purchase access to individual courses.
