We get to follow the journey of everyday people setting out to achieve a lifelong ambition to become a paramedic. New recruits must first survive eight grueling weeks of medical theory and assessment at Paramedic College. Many have no medical background … they arrive with nothing more than an overpowering motivation to save lives. But this is a journey and a career that will also transform their own lives. 

Episode 13

Reynir has just finished eight weeks at Paramedic College and has just begun three years of on road training. It's his 2nd day with new mentor, veteran paramedic Mel and within minutes of starting his shift, Reynir is thrown into the deepest end possible. In Sydney's Central Railway station a businessman is about to make a huge impact on the young trainee. As the man walks to a train, security cameras capture him collapsing to the ground - he's had a heart attack. Minutes later a team of paramedics, including Reynir, rush to treat the man.
