Engaging in CPD demonstrates your commitment to keeping your skills current and in line with the highest standard of contemporary practice.
With the rapidly changing landscape of work expectations, APEA strongly supports the requirement of professional engineers to maintain the highest standards of contemporary practice through Continued Professional Development (CPD)
In order to meet the CPD requirements for assessment for registration in Queensland:
If you worked full-time as a registered practising professional engineer – 50 hours of structured CPD is required over the last 12 months irrespective of the area/s in which you are registered.
Your 50 CPD hours are expected to have been undertaken across a breadth of continuing professional development (CPD) activities.
CPD Categories and limits
Limits apply for a three-year period in some categories. Limits are the maximum contribution of that category to your overall requirement to undertake 50 hours over the 12 months immediately prior to lodgment of your application. Additional hours may be supplied, however only the limits will contribute to your eligibility for assessment.
One of our most popular solutions is our CPD offering. We have an extensive range of CPD available to help both members and non-members meet their renewal requirements for ongoing registration in Victoria. Become a member of APEA to take advantage of the full range.
Members of APEA can also keep their CPD information all in one place in preparation for their renewals and ongoing registration. Please login to My dashboard
