Abstract

This article looks at the challenges and opportunities presented by the use of distance methods to teach student Paramedics. It examines distance learning from the perspective of the employer, the student and the higher education provider, and shows that there are considerable benefits for student paramedics and their employers in adopting a distance teaching approach to paramedic education. There are no short cuts to a successful outcome, and it is important to adopt the highest quality distance education.
