About the Paramedics programme

Paramedic eLearning is a suite of Continuing Professional Development modules for Paramedics working in a variety of settings.  These online modules have been developed with the aim of providing ‘bite-sized’, interactive learning experiences that function well on a variety of mobile devices.  ELearning for Paramedics is available for free for all NHS and military employees, all users of a .ac.uk address in Higher Education and all College of Paramedics Members.  Learning is recorded on the eLearning for Healthcare Hub.  NHS employees may also access the modules via their Electronic Staff Record.

The modules have had editorial support from expert Paramedics, with technical support from the eLearning of Healthcare Instructional Design team and steering group oversight from the Association of Ambulance Service Chief Executives, the National Educational Network for Ambulance Services, the College of Paramedics Educational Advisory Committee and the Forum for Higher Education in Paramedic Science.

Each module consists of up to ten individual sessions that should each take no more than 15 minutes to complete.  Each session includes the same sections:

  • Overview
  • Case Studies
  • Self-Assessment
  • Summary

This platform provides a valuable element of your professional development and a means of refreshing and updating your knowledge.
