CPD Information

Since the APS has aligned its continuing professional development (CPD) requirements with the mandatory CPD requirements set down by the Psychologists Board of Australia (PsyBA), members are responsible for making their own decisions as to which sessions attended at the APS Congress confirm to the PsyBA’s CPD requirements.

Members are also responsible for keeping their own record of which congress sessions they have attended, the number of hours and type of CPD activity. This can most easily be achieved by marking the sessions in which you have participated on your congress program so that you can enter the relevant details into the APS CPD logging system. Delegates who attend the entire congress can accumulate approximately 24.5 CPD hours.

More information about APS CPD requirements is available on the APS website.
