Hey guys,

The ACoP has not been so responsive, so I was just hoping someone might be able to confirm that I have understood things correctly. As an active Ontario PCP, do I understand correctly that I can get registered in AB with a restricted EMT-A license without needing to sit any exams in person?

You will have to write Alberta's jurisprudence exam, but you are correct that there are no large written or practical exams like when you are applying for your first licence. I've never had any dealing with ACP, but my understanding is that the equivalency process can be quiet a slow one. Apparently 8-9 months is pretty standard fare from the time you send in your application to actually getting an Alberta License. This is of course, just what I've heard through the grapevine. I've never applied for an AB license myself.

I came into Alberta from BC. It was quite simple for me, but Alberta and BC have interprovincial agreements in place. It sounds a little crazy but it might actually be easier for you to license in BC first, then register in Alberta.

Agreement in trade exists but it's not always fair between provinces. For example, I transferred back to BC with an ACP license after registering in Alberta as an EMT-P. I could not have gone the other direction with a BC ACP license. I would only have qualified for an EMT registration.
