APL Healthcare | Healthcare Training Products
APL Healthcare is a family owned and operated business that offers Australia's widest range of healthcare simulation, medical and rescue training products to some of the country's biggest training institutions and organisations.
We became the Australian agent for the Nasco & Simulaids range of training aids in 1994, and since that time has continued to grow solid alliances with suppliers in the USA, Singapore, China, Japan, Israel and Europe.
We believe AEDs should be more readily available to save lives in the community, and the best way to achieve that is to make them cheaper.
