Currently available registered roles


Registration will be available across a range of roles in incident and emergency management. 

We have selected roles for registration based on the availability of national standards of practice on which we can base EMPS Professional Standards, and also on the potential for these roles to be called upon for interstate or international deployment.

We intend to make all AIIMS incident management team roles available for registration by the end of 2018, with the exception of investigation officer. We will also make a selection of other roles available based on feedback as to demand within the sector, and the availability of national consensus on criteria for the roles in question.

Until mid-2018, EMPS offered a Registered Incident Controller credential. This recognised capable practitioners with experience in managing routine and moderate impact emergency events. The Registered Incident Controller credential is no longer available to new applicants, who are encouraged to consider whether they meet the criteria for Registered Level 2 Incident Controller.
