The Androgogic team would like to salute long standing client and leading healthcare education provider, Medcast for their involvement and support, working with the Australian Government Department of Health in providing free  access to SURGE – Critical Care Education Courses amid the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Access to SURGE -Critical Care courses will be sponsored by the Australian Government Department of Health. The collaboration will see $4.1 million funded to the e-learning provider with 20,000 new online education places made available to efficiently and rapidly upskill for Registered Nurses (RNs) across Australia in high dependency and critical care settings, such as Intensive Care Units (ICU), a need that is in high demand as Australia fights the Covid-19 health pandemic.

Courses will be delivered through Totara LMS to provide quality learning experience. The programs are designed to fast track healthcare staff and equip them with skills and knowledge to work on the front line in response to the surging numbers of coronavirus patients requiring medical care.  

All education will be made available online. Participants must also be working in or are about to commence work in a public or private Australian hospital or approved by the Australian government to provide COVID-19 related medical care services.   

Registered Nurses who are registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia and require upskilling to work in HDU, ICU, Emergency or Coronary Care/Cardiology Units, Interventional Radiology Units and Peri-Anaesthesia Units are eligible to access these new courses. All units will be made online by 9th April and training must completed within 28 days of enrolment.
