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 at the appropriate registration level or higher. There are three distinct routes that lead to the award of an NQEMT qualification:
- Successful NQEMT Examinations
- Recognition of Prior Learning and successful NQEMT Examinations
- Recognition of Qualifications Obtained Outside the State of Ireland

Application Process

Applicants must submit a completed application form in hardcopy accompanied by:
- 1 x Passport photo (this must be an ID quality photo in which the applicant is clearly identifiable)
- €10 Annual Registration Fee (covers one years registration or part thereof).  Payment should be made by PayPal (or by including a cheque, postal order or bank draft with the application - payable to the Pre-hospital Emergency Care Council).

Incomplete applications will be returned to the applicant, unprocessed.  Complete applications are processed within 28 days.  Once processed, licence and registration certificate are posted to the address supplied on the application form.

Please note the re-registration process and dates when registering.

Once registered, an applicant has committed to the statements in the Declaration and Commitment section of the application form, the Code of Conduct and Ethics, maintaining a CPC portfolio and following the Registration Rules including re-registration.  Deviation from any of the items set out in these documents may result in the Registrant being subject to a Fitness to Practice investigation.

Please note the re-registration process and dates when registering.

Fraudulent Applications

If an application is deemed to be fraudulent it will preclude the applicant from ever being awarded the NQEMT or joining the PHECC Register.
