Enhanced Paramedic Skills

The course is suitable for registered paramedics who wish to enhance their clinical skills and knowledge. This award facilitates the development of the key skills and competencies required for advanced patient assessment and injury or illness management. You will need to complete the three required modules in order to gain the Graduate Diploma in Enhanced Paramedic Skills with each module due to run in September and February. As the modules run separately, you can tailor the programme to suit your needs by controlling how long it takes you to gain the final award. The maximum length of time you will need to commit to this programme is two years. It is 18 months part time or 12 months full time commitment at our Uxbridge campus.
