Emergency paramedic with training from EU/EEA/Switzerland, professional qualification

The profession of emergency paramedic is regulated in Germany. This means that in order to be able to work as an emergency paramedic in Germany, you need a state permit. With permission, you may use the job title "Emergency Paramedic" and work in the profession.

Even with a professional qualification from the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, you can obtain state permission from the competent authority in Germany.

In order to obtain the permit, you must have your foreign professional qualification recognised.

In the recognition procedure, the competent authority compares your professional qualification from abroad with the German professional qualification and checks its equivalence. The equivalence of the professional qualification is an important prerequisite for the granting of the state permit.

In addition to the equivalence of the professional qualification, you must also meet other requirements for the granting of the permit. Further requirements are e.B. sufficient German language skills and health suitability.

If your professional qualification does not originate from the EU, EEA or Switzerland, other regulations apply.

You can also apply for the procedure from abroad.
