Paramedic Registration

Home / Paramedic Registration

Paramedics – Australia’s most trusted profession – are swiftly progressing towards national registration and inclusion in the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme. With national registration due to become a reality in Australia in late 2018, Paramedics Australasia is your partner in helping you prepare for national registration. We are here to provide support transitioning to the new scheme, and here to ensure all our members meet and maintain the necessary requirements of national registration once it is up and running.

We have developed a suite of support services to ensure our members are prepared for registration:

  • Members have access to affordable professional indemnity insurance via the partnership we have formed with Guild Insurance
  • Member access to a range of CPD and eLearning activities via the eLearning portal
  • Our custom built individual member CPD portfolio will soon to be released – you will be able to collate your CPD evidence in one easy-access location once you become registered.

Do you have questions about registration?

If you have questions or concerns about national registration and how it will impact you, contact us via the free PA National Registration Hotline 1300 077 006 and dedicated email

The PA National Registration Hotline and dedicated email address is a free service where members can ask specific questions about national registration – no matter where you are employed or located or whether you are a student, a graduate, an early to mid-career paramedic or planning the final years of your paramedicine career.

The hotline and dedicated email are manned by a committed team who will answer your questions promptly and, if needed, seek further advice on your behalf through our network of experts that includes the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

We also provide regular national registration updates on our website, through our social media on Twitter and Facebook and in our monthly eNewsletter Rapid Response and quarterly member magazine RESPONSE.
