10 June 2021
Everything you need to know about meeting your CPD requirements as we emerge from COVID.
As we start returning to a "COVID normal" we appreciate that some of you may still have difficulties completing certain continuing professional development (CPD) activities due to ongoing restrictions and/or personal preferences. We hope the following information will help. And don't forget, we're always happy to help if you have any specific questions or concerns.
Our COVID-19 information for CPD participants webpage contains an array of useful links and information with activity options and alternatives, aimed at assisting those affected by panademic restrictions. It also provides answers to some of the COVID and CPD specific frequently asked questions (FAQ).
Navigating your portfolio
Our CPD portfolio support document has been designed to provide CPD participants with a helpful guide to nagivate your online CPD portfolio, including detailed information on how to use the platform’s dashboard and how to meet requirements well before your end of triennium.
The CPD portfolio has been deisgned for you to conveniently access and email annual CPD statements of participation and triennial certficates of compliance, further details available in the CPD handbook.
A statement of participation is an annual statement confirming the minimum credit requirement for that specific year has been met. It is used to demonstrate you are actively enrolled in an accredited CPD program.
If there is an ‘x’ beside a statement in your CPD portfolio, this generally means there are still outstanding credits for that year. You can find the amount of credits you have entered for each year in your triennium on your CPD portfolio dashboard, under ‘Annual progress’. You can also scroll through other years of your triennium using the ‘Prev’ ‘Next’ tabs to view credits entered for those specific years.
Please note: You will not gain access to any of your statements until you have completed your CPD Plan, they will all remain with an ‘x’ .
If you require confirmation of your CPD enrolment and do not yet have access to a current statement of participation, please email for alternative confirmation.
