From 1 December 2018, paramedics must be registered with the Paramedicine Board of Australia (the Board) and meet the Board's registration standards in order to practise in Australia.

Your registration will be recognised in all the states and territories of Australia, and your name will be included on a public register of practitioners, which is managed by AHPRA.

Online applications to the Board opened at 9am on 3 September 2018 AEST.
