    Graduate Certificate of Aeromedical Retrieval

    I have a big love for pre hospital trauma and I would really love to pursue a career in aeromedical retrieval in a civilian and military capacity. This course is the only one of its kind in Australia and it is giving me the base and knowledge I need to expand my career, especially the aerial and the marine diving side.
