Recognition of suitability process

Emergency response activities require prior recognition by ANZCA of suitability. Before submitting an application for recognition, please read the relevant emergency response standard. Application forms for recognition of suitability should be completed and submitted, along with a copy of the outline or structure of the intended course or workshop, by the facilitator. If your application is approved, you will receive the following: 

  • Confirmation that the course delivered from that date is recognised as suitable.

  • A recognition of suitability code that needs to be recorded by all ANZCA CPD Program participants who complete the recognised course. The recognition provided by ANZCA will have an expiry date. Prior to this date, ANZCA will contact the course provider to request a new application. 

  • Wording to use in advertising materials.

  • A reminder that any changes to the course content recognised by ANZCA will result in the activity no longer being valid as an emergency response activity. A new application will need to be submitted if a courses content is changed.

  • A reminder that the course is not an ANZCA course, cannot be ANZCA branded, is not accredited, and that the quality of the delivery of the course cannot be assured by ANZCA.
