CPD Reporting Transition Policy

To support this harmonization and as well, facilitate implementation of a new online CPD reporting service, the following transition policy will be in effect:

  • All members will be expected to be fully compliant with their legacy 2014 CPD requirements. 
  • All members will commence a new CPD reporting cycle as at January 1, 2015 - with a zero hour balance. Accordingly, the first 3 year reporting period will be 2015 through 2017.   
  • To clarify, the zero hour CPD balance will not disadvantage any member regardless of the credit hours the member may have accumulated to December 2014. Consider that all credits accumulated in 2014 and earlier would have dropped off prior to the end of this new 3 year reporting period. 
  • While the first 120 CPD hour balance does not have to be attained until December 31, 2017, a minimum of 20 CPD hours must be reported annually. 
  • As a requirement of membership, members are expected to understand and comply with the new harmonized CPD requirements. Please carefully review the CPD Reporting Requirements policy document.
