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. Licensing Exam
All new applicants must successfully complete the licensing exam. See Licensing Exam Info to register for your exam. Applicants who have not yet completed the exam may apply for a restricted licence at an additional cost. Members with a restricted licence may work under the direct supervision of an unrestricted member at their licence level or higher as they wait to pass their exam. More info on restricted licences >
2. Member Account
All members need a Member Account, used for sending information and documents to the College. If you do not have one, create a new Member Account here >
(NOTE for Hotmail & Outlook users: please add "collegeofparamedics.sk.ca" to your Safe Senders list so that all emails from the College are received. Most communication regarding your application will be by email, and those emails almost always go straight to the Hotmail junk folder unless this step is taken. Instructions for adding to Safe Senders)
After creating your Member Account, you'll be asked to answer a couple of mandatory demographics questions, and include a copy of your government-issued identification, i.e. driver's licence. Once you click Save and Continue, you'll be taken to your Member Account.
For your member identification card, please upload a head and shoulders photo to your Member Account.
Selfies against a plain background are acceptable as long as you look
professional. Shirt with a collar or a plain t shirt without logos are
recommended. In uniform preferred.
3. Initial Registration form
Your Initial Registration form is a button in your Member Account, under the heading Recent Graduates - Canadian Trained.
This form will ask you to attach the items listed in steps 4 and 5 below.
If you are unable to open the Initial Registration form and receive an error message, go to the Applications tab and fill out the Initial Applicant form. Once you submit this form, others will unlock.
4. Transcripts and Certificates
Applicants at the EMR level should attach a digital copy (scan or photo) of their certificate from a SCoP-approved program to their Initial Registration form.
PCP and ACP applicants should download the Request for Transcripts form (pdf) and have their CMA-accredited educational institution forward original transcripts directly to SCoP at 205 - 3775 Pasqua Street, Regina SK S4S 6W8
If you are a new grad and have not registered within two years of graduating, but are still less than five years since graduating, additional evidence of an approved re-entry program will be required. If you have not applied to register for more than five years since graduating from an entry level program, you will be required to retake the training program in its entirety.
