HCPC Approved programmes? What if it's not approved by the College of Paramedics?Watch
e.g. Coventry is approved by the HCPC but not by the College of Paramedics whereas Lincoln, for example, is approved by both?
Would it be better to study to study a paramedic course approved by both?
The College of Paramedics is a growing group that speaks on behalf of paramedics, their approval essentially means it is line with what they believe paramedics should be taught and what paramedics should be doing. It is an excellent organization that holds a large voice for developing paramedic practice. However, they have no official role with becoming a paramedic and although it will be beneficial to go on a course approved by them, it is not essential nor mandatory.
Hope that helps.
