- Protect the public.
- Assures consumers that the professionals have met standards of the practice.
- Advances the profession.
- Establishes standards f the professional knowledge, skills, and practice.
- The registry adheres to and upholds the highest international standards for independent examination and measurement standards.
- Standards are similar to the national registry of the EMTs in the United State of America and the pre-hospital emergency care council of Ireland.
EMS certification is an important component of the public protection. The registry of prehospital provides EMS certification, is a validated and legally defensible attestation of competency.
When an individual obtains a EMS certification the general public, employers and licensing authorities know that the individual has demonstrated competency.
Consistent standards set by the EMS community means patients can expect the same level of competency from EMS providers, regardless of whether they are volunteers or career-based or located in urban or rural settings.
Certification through the DRPP indicates that a standard level of the competency has been met. Certifications means an individual has demonstrated entry level competency, but does not authorize a person to work. Emergency medical professionals are required to obtain a governmental license to work.
