Anaesthetic Technician: Caitlan Noble

After completing a Bachelor of Commerce, Caitlan did an internship with Telethon, where raising funds for sick children sparked her passion to do more in the health industry.

She started working as a clerical officer at Princess Margaret Hospital, which further fueled her desire to help people. Caitlan looked at what pathways were available and started a Diploma of Anaesthetic Technology where she achieved excellent results.

Caitlan is now an anaesthetic technician at King Edward Memorial Hospital in Perth.

“I um-ed and ah-ed for almost two years over doing this course and I wish I’d done it sooner,” she said.

“It was life-changing, it’s really put me towards a career I hadn’t considered and now I couldn’t see myself doing anything different.”

Caitlan is on track to achieve her Schedule 4R and 8 Drug license, which she hopes will lead to a long-term career in the public health care system.

“Choosing this course has changed the trajectory of my life,” Caitlan said.

“I wish I discovered this pathway sooner…I would without a doubt recommend this, and other courses provided by TAFE, as I believe they provide students with not only the skills and training, but they create real pathways to enter the industry.

“I found the TAFE environment really beneficial. If you are willing to put in the hard work at TAFE, you will be rewarded.”

Caitlan is also continuing her involvement with Telethon and regularly volunteers her time with the organisation.

Caitlan was the 2018 Western Australian Training Awards Vocational Student of the Year, the 2018 Australian Training Awards Vocational Student of the Year, and is a member of the Australian VET Alumni.
