We recommend you refer to your Licensee’s FASEA CPD policy to understand your individual CPD requirements.

The Transition period explained

The FASEA CPD policy set the minimum amount of CPD at 40 hours per year, with the commencement being 1 January 2019. For many, the first CPD period was a transitional period, often involving more than 12 months.

If your licensee’s CPD year is a financial year, then this first CPD plan has been for a period of 18 months. (1 Jan 2019 – 30 June 2020). For those with a 30 June 2020 CPD end date, this means your minimum CPD requirement for this 18 month period is 60 CPD hours and each of the mandatory topic areas are also increased on a pro-rata basis.
