Continuing Professional Development (CPD)


The CPD requirements for psychologists are determined by the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA). Registered psychologists are required to complete a set number of continuing professional development hours as a requirement of ongoing registration.

The APS no longer accredits or approves for CPD for psychologists. Further information about CPD requirements for psychologists can be found on the Psychology Board of Australia website.

It is up to individual psychologists to assess how CPD events meet the requirements of their individual learning plan. If audited by the PsyBA, psychologists must be able to justify selection of particular CPD activities according to their individual learning needs. This can most easily be achieved by marking the sessions in which you have participated on your conference program so that you can enter the relevant details into the APS CPD logging system.

A certificate of attendance for the conference and each workshop attended will be sent electronically to all attendees the week after the conference.
