Our Mission

It is the mission of the International Paramedic Registry to work collaboratively with stakeholders to define and assess competency in the practice of paramedicine internationally and to maintain a current registry of individuals who attain and continually meet these standards.



Our certification exams are based on accepted international standards and localized to reflect the needs and cultural context of participating countries to develop a set of core minimum competencies.

We act with fairness and impartiality in conducting our activities. We work with our stakeholders to continually understand and overcome cultural influences and unconscious biases.

We strive for excellence in everything we do. Our practices are evidenced-based. We develop new standards based on established scientific methodologies. Our innovative and visionary approach enhances the profession.

We work collaboratively with stakeholders to meet the needs of the community, establishing valid and reliable measurements for initial and continued competency.
