Acquiring a licence from SCoP includes sending some items by postal mail and others online with the Initial Registration form. The online form requires several items to be attached to it and it can only be sent once. Applications are not processed until payment and all requirements have been received by SCoP.
1. Member Account and Initial Registration form
All members need a Member Account, used for sending information and documents to the College.
If you have registered for an exam with us, we have created an account for you. Retrieve your username and password here, or contact us.
If you do not have one, create a new Member Account here >
Your Initial Registration form is in your Member Account, under the Applications tab.
This form will ask you to attach the items listed in steps 3 and 4 below.
2. Verification of Registration
If you are already licensed in another Canadian province, complete the top portion of this Verification of Registration form (pdf) and send it to the regulatory agency or agencies in the province(s) where you are licensed. Have the agency complete the form and mail the original directly to SCoP.
Some paramedics being licensed in Saskatchewan will be issued a restricted licence, at no extra charge for the restriction, until they make up critical training deficiencies.
The following chart identifies the requirements for practitioners transferring from each province: Approved Exemptions - Provincial comparison to Saskatchewan (pdf).
Training programs available are listed on our CME Opportunities page.
