What is continuing professional development (CPD)?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. The CPD year runs from 1 April to 31 March the following year. Most practitioners are required to complete 10 CPD units each year. For clarification on the number of CPD units you need to complete, you should contact your state regulating body.

How to choose a professional development opportunity


Identify any knowledge or skills gaps relevant to your current role or the role you aspire to. 


Investigate the options to address those gaps. Is it a short program? Is it a certificate? Or is it a degree program?


Consider how you want to learn – face-to-face, online or via webinars?


Ask colleagues and friends what programs, courses and other strategies have been most useful to them.
