Short courses

For over 15 years the Department of Community Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice (DCEHPP) has offered a range of first responder and paramedic short course programs.  DCEHPP delivers short courses to students currently working in, or planning employment in paramedicine and community-based emergency health settings. Our suite of short courses have been developed to meet the initial training and/or on-going professional development requirements of many organisations and students in paramedicine and community-based emergency health settings.


DCEHPP were recently approved by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) US as a training site to teach the following course nationally and internationally; a first for any Australian university.  The courses include:

Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS)
Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS)
Geriatric Education for EMS (GEMS)
