The APS Congress is a major showcase for Psychology in Australia. The first congress held in 2016 "Psychology United for the Future" was a show of unity and strength of the profession celebrating growth of all the constituent sectors of psychology within Australia over the last 50 years. The congress program contained rich content, developed in collaboration with the Colleges, Divisions and Interest Groups of the Australian Psychological Society and we look forward to bringing you an equally exciting program in 2018.
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 Congress program so that you can enter the relevant details into the APS CPD logging system.
A certificate of attendance, will be sent electronically to all attendees the week after the Congress.
