The Australian & New Zealand College of Paramedicine and the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) Form Strategic Alliance To Promote Quality Paramedic Education.
ANZCP and NAEMT have finalised an agreement to work collaboratively to provide high-quality continuing education to paramedics in Australia and New Zealand.
ANZCP is a leading provider of education and professional development activities for paramedics and paramedic students in Australia and New Zealand, and has developed a reputation for the delivery of quality educational events and online learning resources.
“ANZCP looks forward to developing a successful working relationship with NAEMT through this partnership,” said Marty Nichols, ANZCP Chairman. “Both organisations have a strong focus on the professional development of paramedics and EMTs through the provision of high-quality education and learning opportunities which, in turn, leads to better patient safety and community wellbeing.”
NAEMT is the global leader in Paramedic continuing education, offering the following continuing education courses in the United States and in 65 other countries:
ANZCP and NAEMT will work together to increase awareness of the quality and value of NAEMT continuing education courses to paramedicine professionals and their agencies. The two associations will also work with paramedicine training centres to bring NAEMT courses to their students.
"High quality, evidence-based paramedic education has been a defining pillar of NAEMT as an association, and is the mantra of the authors who create our courses,” remarked NAEMT Dennis Rowe. "We look forward to working with ANZCP to ensure that every paramedic practitioner in Australia and New Zealand has access to the high quality paramedic education that is preferred around the globe.”
