Legislation

Under Alberta's Health Disciplines Act and Emergency Medical Technicians Regulation, only registered members of the Alberta College of Paramedics (ACP) may call themselves an emergency medical responder, emergency medical technician or emergency medical technologist - paramedic. Registered members provide health services listed in the Regulation.

What You Need

Registration requires successful completion of: (1) an approved program of studies and (2) an approved examination. For official, detailed information about registration requirements, visit the ACP website or contact the ACP.

Working in Alberta

Emergency medical personnel who are registered and in good standing with a regulatory organization elsewhere in Canada may be eligible for registration in Alberta if registered practitioners in the two jurisdictions have similar responsibilities and competencies. For more information, see "What if I am already certified in another province or territory?" and the Alberta regulatory authority (below).

To find more information on the certification process for internationally educated emergency medical personnel, see Emergency Medical Personnel Registration Process on the AlbertaCanada.com website.
