Our paramedic training course is run with the two NHS Ambulance Service Trusts of Yorkshire and East Midlands. We hold regular meetings with the trusts to ensure our course is up to date with new developments in paramedic practice. All our lecturers are either qualified paramedics or specialists in emergency care.
We provide you with the expertise, practical skills and experience to become a qualified paramedic. Paramedics are the senior members of accident and emergency ambulance crews, trained in all aspects of pre-hospital emergency care.
When you successfully complete the two year Diploma in Paramedic Practice, you are eligible to apply for registration with the Health Professions Council (HPC), which enables you to begin employment immediately.
