On 15 May 2018, the Ministerial Council to the Paramedicine Board of Australia approved the Board’s registration standards relating to:

  1. Continuing professional development;
  2. Criminal history;
  3. English language skills;
  4. Professional indemnity insurance;
  5. Recency of practice registration; and
  6. Registration for current paramedics who may not be degree qualified, that is registration under the ‘Grandparenting’ provisions.

Now that these standards have been released, paramedics, trainee paramedics and would-be paramedics can see exactly what they need to do to become registered health professionals once the scheme comes into force later this year.

You can download the standards from the website of the Paramedicine Board of Australia – http://www.paramedicineboard.gov.au/Professional-standards/Registration-standards.aspx
