Grandparenting is ending: unregistered practitioners should apply for registration now
The Paramedicine Board of Australia has issued a reminder about grandparenting pathways for paramedic registration, which ends this year.
Unregistered practitioners thinking about applying for registration, who want to rely on their experience practising paramedicine before the national regulation of paramedics, are encouraged to apply for registration before 1 December 2021.
After this date, qualification under the grandparenting pathways will not be available, and paramedics will need to meet the usual qualification pathways provided for in the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (the National Law).
Information on becoming a registered paramedic and how to make an application can be found on the Board’s website. Once you are on the homepage, click Become a registered paramedic to apply.
