These awards recognise our members and colleagues who have contributed to the paramedic profession and the College of Paramedics’ progression. 
In addition, we are excited to launch two new awards in 2021: Companionship, and Honorary Companionship, of the College of Paramedics.

Companionship of the College 
Do you know a paramedic who has rendered a distinctive and notably meritorious service to the paramedic profession?
Their professional achievements may not be exclusively in paramedicine, or may be in some way unconventional, but they have, nevertheless, made a distinctive and notably meritorious contribution to the paramedic profession.

Honorary Companionship of the College
Do you know a non-paramedic colleague who has rendered a distinctive and notably meritorious service to the paramedic profession?
Their professional achievements may not be exclusively in paramedicine, or may be in some way unconventional, but they have, nevertheless, made a distinctive and notably meritorious contribution to the paramedic profession.

The College of Paramedics will be 20 this year and our profession has been regulated for two decades now. To acknowledge this legacy, the criteria for our existing Fellowship and Honorary Awards have been enhanced and extended, so before nominating please read carefully, the Honours and Awards Committee Award Nominations Guidance document, which gives details of the full criteria. Click here to view.
