Applying online for registration as a paramedic

Before you apply, it is important to ensure you are eligible for registration. Check 'Prepare to apply: eligibility for registration' to understand the eligibility requirements to be registered as a paramedic. This will also help give you an understanding of what is needed during the application process.

When to apply

If you have applied for registration before participation day on 1 December 2018, you can continue to practise as a paramedic while your application is being assessed, which may occur after participation day.

If you applied for registration after 1 December 2018 you will be unable to practise as a paramedic until your application is assessed and decided. Please read the fact sheet on the Board's website for further information.

A detailed explanation of the registration process can be found on the AHPRA website.

AHPRA cannot start processing your application until you have completed your application form, provided all required supporting documents and paid the one-off application fee and your annual registration fee.

Your identity documents must be certified as true copies of original documents and state the photograph on photographic documentation (e.g. licence or passport) is a true likeness of the applicant. You do not need to provide certified copies of your other supporting documents unless you are asked by AHPRA to do so. AHPRA may request the documents that you upload with your online application to be provided in certified hard copy via post at any time.


See more information on the documents you may need to upload for registration.
