Career Break Considerations
For those engineers who are only seeking renewal of registration with the BLA Victoria. If the applicant worked part-time as a registered practising professional engineer or took a career break – 90 hours of structured CPD in the last three years irrespective of the area/s in which they are registered.
A professional engineer registered in Victoria as non-practising during the last three years is required to undertake 90 hours of structured CPD.
Teaching and Academic Research
For registered engineers employed in tertiary teaching or academic research a minimum of 40 hours industry involvement is required. This would be included in category E Workplace learning.
The BLA will use information obtained through the registration renewal process to select professional engineers for a CPD audit and advise APEA of the names of the professional engineers to audit.
APEA members seeking ongoing registration in Victoria who also have existing RPEng status are CPD audited as part of APEAs renewal process and can supply their CPD audit to the BLA when seeking renewal of registration in Victoria.
