The Grandparenting registration standard sets out alternative ways of proving you may be qualified for general registration as a paramedic. These pathways are open for a limited time only.
If you wish to apply for general registration as a paramedic before participation day (the date paramedicine becomes regulated under the National Scheme), but you do not hold an ‘approved’, 'substantially equivalent' or ‘accepted’ qualification, you will need to follow a grandparenting pathway to demonstrate your competence to the Board.
It’s important that you read the registration standard for detailed information.
For applicants under the grandparenting pathway, refer to the English language skills FAQ for further information about choosing an English language skills pathway and how to complete the English language skills section of the online application form.
Here is a summary of the three pathways, including eligibility and evidence you may need to provide to gain registration through grandparenting arrangements.
