Hello everyone.. I've been reading everything about CON IRON and i haven't read or it was not stated there anything regarding the pre-requisite hospital experience.. Do they require hospital experience or not? IF YES, is there anyone here who happens to have a link of CON regarding their required hospital experience? TIA! ;)

also, Is it okay to start having my immunizations now? even if i haven't lodged my application to AHPRA yet? :lol2: TIA again!!! :)

Hello Sir Joiemike, does ETEA have minimum years of hospital experience requirement before we can apply for their IRON? I was looking over their website and i haven't read anything about it.. Also, can i start with my immunizations now even if i haven't lodge my application to AHPRA yet? Thanks! :)

I don't think they will accept without the LOE because they will ask for it prior to the phone interview they conduct.I will be having my BP there this april. Do you know any place near the school? Thanks joiemike!

during our time, they require at least one year work experience. i dont know now though. i really dont know about when is the best time for immunizations though. i came prepared because i had them already way before when i was applying for NZ. And besides, my hospital really didnt bother checking our immunizations nor my police check. the police check is required by the embassy though. ;)

You need to have a score of at least 7 in each sub-test in one siting.

Thanks for answering my queries! :) so will i take that as a YES i can start my immunizations now? :D hmmmmm if i'm not mistaken, the police check they require is it the same as the police clearance/nbi clearance here in our country?

for those who moved there from the philippines, is it necessary/helpful to open an australian bank account (eg ANZ) while im still here? I was wondering how you went about your financial transactions while doing your bp :)

Where are you planning to submit your application? I'm almost done with my documents to be submitted to AHPRA, I just have 1 requirement that is lacking.

For those who have less than 2 years hospital experience and are planning to apply for ACFE's bridging program, I suggest you try other BP providers first. Reasons: 1st, ACFE charges $250 application fee; 2nd, in case, you interview successfully, they would issue a "conditional letter of offer" which stipulates that you risk losing the amount of the tuition fee ($12500 for now) in that, if you fail the theoretical component, you would have to terminate from the program without gaining anything.

Sounds like they have not been able to pass some students and they wanted their money back.It sounds reasonable though, when you sign up it cannot be a sure thing for them that every student is capable of finishing the course. If you pay for a course in Australia, if you fail it, you cannot get your money back, it is not very often the education providers fault that you did not pass, it is the students'.
