Industrial Medical Centre – [Clinical Skills]

Professional Development Workshop

The Industrial Medical Centre program is a new and innovative series of workshops designed for any person currently working in a remote area medical centre. It provides the missing link between classroom education and real work requirements. The program has a core focus on skills that are required whilst working in a First Aid room or a Mine Site Medical Centre.

The workshop is suitable for;

  • EMS first responders

  • Medics
  • Certificate IV in Health Care
  • Paramedics
  • Diploma of Paramedical Science

All workshops have a suggested minimum qualification level requirement for program entry, however, we encourage all providers to consider professional development as a necessary component to their already existing skill set.

Workshops include, but are not limited to;

  • Dressings and bandages – what type to use and when – wet dressings v’s Dry
