I would recommend this course to everyone working in paediatrics - it was the best course I have ever attended in so many ways. Brilliantly organised, fantastic information pre-course and well thought out pre-course MCQs to help you read through the manual.

By far the best aspect of the course are the scenarios. Nothing beats the learning gained from the hands-on, real life scenarios. The mistakes you make you will not likely make again.
Candidate feedback, APLS Sydney
The best thing I got from this course was the application of a structured approach in order not to miss a diagnosis or critical management step. I should have done this years ago.
It's fantastic for confidence buildingI really enjoyed the supportive, positive feedback and adult learning principles, unlike some other courses where I've come away less confident than before. Thank you, this was one of the best scenario-based courses.
Candidate feedback, APLS Brisbane
Awesome – such a valuable, knowledgeable, well-organised and presented course.
Candidate feedback, APLS Darwin
I loved the entire course and gained something from each lecture. Having essentially an adult background I found this to be a huge (but enjoyable) learning curve. I feel I gained most from the scenarios and the repetitive structure APLS delivers – I also learnt a lot from my colleagues in my group.
Candidate feedback, APLS Adelaide
Amazing online learning, I loved it. Such an excellent course with a great variety of learning experiences.
Candidate feedback, APLS Melbourne
A brilliant course. Rapid learning curve, brilliant teachers/supervisors, and extremely well organised. Thank you and an absolute pleasure.
Candidate feedback, APLS Geelong
I’ve taken a few of these courses in the past 28 years – this is by far and away the best. Sensible, useful, structured and great faculty.
