If you were assessed as Substantially Comparable or Partially Comparable, you may progress through the next steps of the PEP SP application, as described in the diagram below.

Figure 2 – PEP SP application journey for applicants assessed as PC or SC

Each step is described in more detail in the following sections.


If you are accepted into the PEP SP, you’ll need to provide evidence that you hold a valid Basic Life Support (BLS) certification when you sign your program agreement. If you don’t already have BLS certification, or it is close to expiring, we recommend you complete a BLS course as you progress through your PEP SP application.

You can find more information about BLS, approved instructors and course centres in the Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support Guide.
