Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

In an industry where technology, best practices and regulations are constantly evolving, it is important for design specifiers, in particular Registered Architects, to undertake continuing professional development as a means of developing and maintaining their professional standards of competency.

CPD Requirements

In Australia, Registered Architects within QLD, TAS, NSW and WA are required to accrue 20 CPD points per annum, where at least 10 points must be formal CPD points and where 1 hour of CPD activity equals 1 CPD point.

  • CPD year ends 31st March for Queensland and Tasmania
  • CPD year ends 30th June for New South Wales and Western Australia

At AIS, we provide in-house CPD presentations focusing on the four Units of Competency:

  • Design
  • Documentation
  • Project Management
  • Practice Management

Each CPD presentation has been designed to meet a high educational standard comprising information focused on the design and technical context in which the product may be applied. The presentation aims to educate attendees on innovative design solutions utilising new products, materials and technologies and any new regulations affecting the design process.

Our CPD Menu has a wide range of topics to choose from and we ensure that all presentations meet the specific state/territory registration board requirements.

Similar to our iFlex service, our CPD presentations are held on-premise in your firm/practice at a date and time of your choosing with all event coordination including the issuing of the Certificate of Attendance handled by us.
