I do know that getting a job with the NSW Ambulance Service is extremely difficult. Out of thousands of applicants, they only take 20-30 trainees.
I was going to apply for this course, however it's too far for me and my parent's are unsupportive about going to a university that is very far from where I live. Therefore, I'm just thinking of doing the Postgraduate Certificate in Intensive Care Paramedic Studies. I need to do more research about it though because I don't know if the course I'm going to do in 2010 (B Science/M Nursing at USYD) will allow me to gain entry into this posgrad course.
