Accreditation fee information

Education providers pay two types of accreditation fees - accreditation assessment fees and annual accreditation fees.

The Accreditation Committee sets these fees on a cost recovery basis. 'Cost recovery basis' refers to recovery of some of the costs to deliver the accreditation function including the cost of the Accreditation Committee’s ongoing operations (direct costs and Ahpra support) as well as the direct costs associated with accreditation assessments and standard annual monitoring activities. The fees are reviewed on a regular basis and may change from time to time

Approach to accreditation fees

In early 2021 the Committee considered its approach to paramedicine programs of study for 2021 and beyond.

In April 2021 the Committee sought feedback from education providers on a proposed approach to accreditation fees for the period of 2021-2024. Following consideration of feedback from some education providers, the proposal was submitted to the Paramedicine Board of Australia (the National Board) for approval.

The schedule of paramedicine accreditation fees 2021-2024 was approved by the National Board in May 2021.
