To the members & followers in Australia whom practice as a Paramedic - today is the day!
From 9am AEST today (Monday 3 September 2018) you can begin to submit your applications for paramedic registration.
In order to continue practicing as a paramedic in Australia, applications must to be received before Participation Day - a date in December which we expect to be able to confirm soon.
If you have applied for registration before participation day, you can continue to practise as a paramedic while your application is being assessed, which may occur after participation day.
If you apply for registration after participation day you will be unable to practice as a paramedic until your application is assessed and decided.
Students, medics, volunteer ambulance officers and EMTs do not need to apply for registration but registration is open to anyone who can satisfy the Board they are qualified and suitable for registration - more information via: https://www.paramedicineboard.gov.au/Registration/Check-if-you-need-to-register.aspx
