Continuing Professional Development
Your professional designation confirms that you remain current in your field and that you are managing your own Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Professional Bodies monitor currency through CPD reporting. You must demonstrate your currency to the ASDSA by gaining at least 30 CPD points every year, as well as by paying your Membership and Designation renewal fees.
We recommend that you build up your record of your CPD activities on your CPD Report. You must submit a copy of this CPD Report each year together with your membership/designation renewal. You must also keep evidence of each of these activities. The ASDSA will audit 10% of all CPD Reports each year and so may call on you to substantiate your CPD Report with this supporting evidence.
The CPD guideline will assist you in completing your CPD Report. In addition to that, you can also join the CPD virtual workshop that we run each quarter.
Keep a record of your accumulated CPD points throughout the year. Submit this report when renewing your membership / designation.
