Paramedic Practitioners, and Paramedics with primary healthcare skills: improving the quality of community health care
The Australasian College of Paramedic Practitioners (ACPP) will create employment pathways for experienced and registered Paramedics that hold post graduate qualifications in primary healthcare. ACPP promotes, lobbies and advocates for the specialist paramedics throughout all layers of government and all sectors of the healthcare system.
Paramedics are nationally regulated by the Paramedic Board of Australia for the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. Paramedics must complete a minimum of 30 hours of continuing professional development each year.
ACPP members must be registered paramedics with post graduate qualifications in primary healthcare. ACPP practitioner levels include general member, associate fellow or fellow. Member levels are determined by educational levels of courses approved by the ACPP.
