2018 – 2020 end of triennium results
Our continuing professional development (CPD) program’s most recent triennium, 2018 – 2020, process has been completed with 100% meeting requirements. We congratulate the 1687 participants for this achievement and the dedication you have displayed in updating your CPD portfolios. Find further information on how this compares to previous CPD trienniums and how other CPD trienniums are progressing here.
Two new CPD activities
ANZCA Council have approved the inclusion of two new CPD activities to the ANZCA CPD standard. There are no changes to annual or triennial CPD requirements; these changes are additional activity options for the knowledge and skills category (from 17 to 18 activities), and emergency response category (from 7 to 8 activities).
2021 college CPD operations
The college and the ANZCA and FPM CPD committee have closely monitored the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions on participants meeting their CPD requirements. Most notably with the action to waive our 2020 verification (audit) of CPD activities process.
The 2021 college CPD operations will proceed:
- Participants in the 2019 – 2021 CPD triennium will continue with the final submission date of 31 December 2021.
- The college will prepare to conduct a 2021 annual verification (audit) with selection and notification provided from September 2021.
There are no changes to annual or triennial CPD requirements or final submission dates (31 December) across trienniums. Participants who may be concerned about meeting their requirements are encouraged to connect with the CPD team to discuss their options and/or consider our special consideration process.
