As a member of the Australasian College of Paramedicine, the peak representative body for paramedics across Australia and New Zealand, you belong to a College that is focused on your learning and career development, and actively leading the profession forward with a unified voice for the benefit of all paramedics and student paramedics.
Membership of the College connects you with a network of like-minded paramedics and students, provides opportunities for you to develop your knowledge and, importantly, helps you maintain your paramedic registration through our learning management system.
The College is an essential partner in thousands of paramedic careers and could be in yours too.
Joining the College is easy. Our flexible membership categories allow you to join and receive membership benefits, no matter what part of the profession you are in. We provide a number of payment methods, allowing you to either pay upfront or spread the cost across the year through fortnightly or monthly payment methods.
In most cases, your membership will become active immediately, giving you access to online content and member event pricing after joining. We do need to undertake some checks at our end, so in some cases we may request further information and documentation from you, to help us confirm your chosen membership category. This can take up to 14 days but doesn’t restrict your member access.
The volunteer membership is only available to people not employed full time in the field of Paramedicine. If you are both employed and also volunteer your time with another organisation, you would be required to sign up for the ‘employed' plan.
If you have any questions regarding membership, please contact Louise on 1300 730 450 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The College does offer some price reductions for special circumstances but this will not normally be considered on your first year’s membership. In all circumstances, documented evidence of reduced employment hours / income or period of maternity leave will be required. Please contact Louise on the details below to discuss.
Students and Volunteers can pay online by credit card. Members on the 'employed' plan can elect to pay by credit card, direct debit or payroll deduction.
The College has a number of membership levels, including prestigious titles of Fellows. These membership levels reflect the various backgrounds and positions of members in their professional career development.
