The Paramedicine Board's (the Board) Professional capabilities for registered paramedics (the professional capabilities) come into effect on 1 June 2021.
The Board published the professional capabilities in September 2020.
The professional capabilities identify the knowledge, skills and professional attributes needed to safely and competently practise as a paramedic in Australia. They describe the threshold level of professional capability required for both initial and continuing registration.
The Chair of the Paramedicine Board of Australia presented on these capabilities during a webinar held for paramedic education providers last month. If you were unable to attend, a recording of the webinar is now available on the Accreditation News and updates page.
To further support the understanding of the paramedic capabilities the Board has published FAQs.
The professional capabilities are published on the Professional capabilities page.
