There are only ten days remaining for Australian paramedics to renew your registration with Ahpra and avoid a late fee.
Important registration renewal dates:
What’s different about registration this year?
This year, the Board will be asking paramedics at renewal whether they perform exposure-prone procedures, and if so, to answer additional questions about compliance with the Communicable Diseases Network Australia (CDNA) guidelines about blood-borne viruses. Each renewal question will provide definitions, information and links to resources to help you answer accurately.
The new guidelines on blood-borne viruses came into effect in early July. For more information and to view the guidelines and other helpful resources, please see the news item.
Advertising declaration and audit
You will be required to complete a new declaration that your advertising complies with Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (National Law) advertising requirements.
This is part of a risk-based approach to enforcing the National Law’s advertising requirements and compliance by registered health practitioners who advertise their services and will include auditing of health practitioners to check advertising compliance.
Download your registration certificate and tax invoice
Paper certificates are no longer issued but you can print a registration certificate from your online services account after you’ve renewed. You can also download your tax receipt.
The online register of practitioners is updated every day making it the safest way for practitioners and employers to check registration status.
