Joining The Register

To be eligible to join the Register you must hold the National Qualification in Emergency Medical Technology (NQEMT) as awarded by PHECC. This is an Irish qualification obtained through our examination or our recognition of qualifications from outside Ireland process.

If your qualifications were obtained in Ireland but you do not have an NQEMT awarded by PHECC you may apply to a recognised institution for recognition of prior learning (RPL). Follow this link.
