APA (NSW) was back in the IRC today in relation to the proposed roll-out of the Professional Development Program (PDP) for paramedics by the NSWA. We highlighted to the IRC the outstanding concerns our members held regarding the PDP and requested that the PDP not be implemented until our concerns were addressed.
These concerns include:
Whilst Commissioner Newall sympathised with our concerns, he would not delay the implementation of the PDP. Instead, he made a recommendation that the PDP be implemented and the matter remain open for parties to request relisting if any significant issues arise in the future.
We encourage members to contact us if they are not provided with adequate time to undertake the required training and/or requirements for the PDP or believe that the PDP is being misused or applied inappropriately. APA (NSW) will ensure members in these situations are fully supported.
