Professional standards


On this page you can find links to all of the professional standards that have been adopted for EMPS.

Professional Standards are endorsed by the EMPS Panel and approved by the AFAC Council. Professional Standards for individual roles represent a national consensus on the standards required to demonstrate proficiency (for registered roles) or expertise (for certified roles). Other standards describe aspects of professional practice such as Continuing Professional Development.
