The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program was introduced in January 1992 to enable members to stay ahead with developments in our profession so as to enable us to provide the best possible service to our clients and employers, and to maintain our existence as the leading authority in the field.

CPD is defined as the systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skill, and the development of personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties throughout the practitioner's working life.

CPD attainment is to be a mandatory requirement for every Fellow, Member, Probationer and Technical Member to comply. Members must clock in at least a total of 60 hours in a 3-year period i.e. 20 hours per year.

Members who have completely retired from practice and Honorary Fellows are exempted from this requirement.

Members are responsible for maintaining a record of their participation in the CPD activities in the CPD Booklet and send a copy to the Institute when so requested.

Effective from 1st December 2016.

Max 20 CPD points claimable every year - with the carry forward to remain at 20 points.

Claim under activity C & D - member may be requested to submit a copy of attendance certificate.
