Nationally Accredited Course

    HLT31115 - Certificate III in Non-Emergency Patient Transport

    The course has been designed as a mixed mode delivery program which includes a combination of e-learning, pre-reading workbooks and assessments coupled with face to face practical sessions. Due to the practical nature of the classroom based sessions, students should enrol as soon as possible to provide sufficient time to complete the mandatory pre-reading and assessment tasks.

    The face-to-face training includes 15 days with 3 blocks of 5 x 8 hour class room sessions. The blocks may be undertaken consecutively or undertaken in 3 separate blocks based on the individual’s availability. In addition to the 15 days of face-to-face training, students will require to complete their e-learning, pre-reading and assessments. It is estimated that this will require a further 10-12 weeks to complete however students may be able to complete in a shorter time based on the students prior knowledge and experience. This work must be undertaken prior to attendance at the face-to-face classroom sessions. Students will have up to 12 months to complete this course.

    As some of the course material and assessments will be accessed through an e-learning package, students must have access to a reliable computer with MS Office or MAC equivalent, printer, internet access. Subject fees do not include computers, printers, software and/or internet access.

    The face-to-face component of the course is conducted over 3 blocks of 5 days which are held over consecutive weeks i.e. 15 days of face to face training and assessment. Participants have the option to either enrol in the 3 consecutive blocks or enrol in individual blocks of 1 week over a longer period of time.

    Driver training is held in Block 1 and work placements which includes 2 days ‘on the road’ working with National Patient Transport’s crews in a real life setting is held in Block 3. One day is defined as an “observer” shift where students are able to observe NPT crews working in a real life environment. The other day is defined as a “work placement” where students will be working with a Clinical Instructor and working under supervision with real patients.
