This subject contains a 5 day Compulsory Residential School.
The Bachelor of Clinical Practice (Paramedic) is currently accredited by the Council of Ambulance Authorities (CAA). In aligning to the accreditation policy, face to face time is required when teaching and assessing clinical practice skills. The online subject and internal subject must have equity in teaching standards.
