Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Reporting Requirements

CPD is reported on a calendar year basis. The deadline for reporting both the minimum annual and minimum three-year rolling cycle requirement is January 31, 2021. This three-year cycle covers the period January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2020. To prevent underreporting of qualifying CPD hours on your annual report, members are encouraged to report CPD hours as they are earned instead of all at once at the end of the year.

Minimum CPD Requirements for 2020

 Annual RequirementsThree-year Requirements

*As of January 1, 2019, members are required to complete a minimum of four hours in professional ethics during the three-year rolling cycle ending December 31, 2021. Members will then be required to complete the minimum of four hours during each subsequent three-year rolling cycle.

We encourage members to use this information to update their member profile for any 2020 hours completed to date and to plan CPD activities for the remainder of the year accordingly. 

CPD can be reported at any time through the member profile login page. You can also review your previously reported CPD hours to determine if additional CPD learning activities are required to fulfill the minimum CPD requirements by December 31, 2020.
