CPD points are accrued by taking part in mandatory and elective training activities which are specified by the industry regulator.
The CPD program is part-funded by the regulator - the mandatory component. Elective training courses must be paid for by you, the participant.
When do I start the CPD program
The CPD program operates on an annual cycle based on the calendar year. In each year, registrants and licensees must accumulate a total of at least ten points of CPD activities. Of these ten points, three points must be earned from the mandatory activities and the remaining seven or more points from approved elective CPD activities.
If you are a new licensee who has had their triennial certificate granted for the first time between 1 October and 31 December of a calendar year and you completed a prescribed examination for the grant of the licence in the 12 months immediately before the day on which the licence was granted, you are not required to participate in the CPD program during the year in which you are first granted a new triennial certificate.
If you are a new sales representative who has had their certificate of registration granted for the first time between 1 October and 31 December of the calendar year, you are not required to participate in the CPD program during the year in which you are first granted a new sales registration.
For more information, please visit the DMIRS CPD program page.
Do I need to keep records of my training
Yes. Although the providers of your training will report your attendance at CPD training events, you are also required to obtain and keep records of your attendance.
You need to keep records of your training for a period of four years.
What happens if I do not accrue 10 CPD points each year
The regulator considers that you have not complied with the program and this may affect the renewal of your licence or certificate of registration. The regulator deals with any instances of non-compliance on a case by case basis but you may be refused renewal of licence or registration or have conditions placed on them.
To be eligible
You must be in attendance for the full duration of the course in order to be eligible for CPD points. If you are unable to attend on the day, or think you will be late, please contact us so we can advise you of your options.
