TestReach has partnered with the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) to support the delivery of its computer-based examinations.

Headquartered at NexusUCD, in Dublin, TestReach provides an online assessment solution for the creation, delivery, management, and analysis of high-stake examinations.

The PHECC is responsible for implementing, monitoring, and developing the standards for education and provision of care by all statutory, private, and voluntary ambulance services in Ireland. It publishes clinical practice guidelines for pre-hospital emergency care training as well as education.




The Council also manages the National Qualification in Emergency Medical Technology (NQEMT) examination process for developing course content, authoring examination questions, training of examiners, invigilation, as well as clinical oversight of examinations, issuing examination results, and ultimately, awarding the NQEMT at EMT, Paramedic and Advanced Paramedic Level.

Alison Bell, head of growth, TestReach, said: “TestReach is delighted to partner with PHECC to provide the innovative solutions required to support PHECC’s ambitious strategy for exceptional exam delivery. The Council has a crucial objective of confirming that any emergency care is provided by skilled and trained professionals, and we feel absolutely privileged to provide our innovative technology assessment solution for the delivery and support of the Council’s computer-based examinations.”

“The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council welcomes the opportunity to work with TestReach,” said Brendan Cawley, programme manager, PHECC, “who use new and innovative ways of assessing a candidates’ clinical knowledge and skills, while maintaining a high degree of service integrity and security in the examination process.”
