Member Feedback on CPD
Posted 22nd August 2011


*** Member Feedback on CPD ***

A number of our Members have expressed their concerns about the evolution of, and changes to, the AIR’s CPD program.

The Board wishes to assure all members that these concerns have been heard and that the announced application of the 50 CPD per annum will be suspended so as to allow for further discussion with members, for clear explanation and mapping of the changes. 

The Board believes that it is important that the current high standards of practice in this profession continue.  Members have clearly indicated support for our CPD program and for better opportunity to gain CPD points from a wider range of involvement and activity, but would appreciate the time and opportunity to discuss and better understand what these changes mean.

To ensure that all members have the opportunity to comment and to understand the proposed changes, as announced above the requirement for 50 points per annum is suspended until further notice. In the coming months, additional information will be circulated and we would invite comment and feedback.

Please continue with the present scheme of 12 points per annum /36 per cycle until further notice.

The Board assures all Members that stakeholder communication and further potential for adjustment were always planned to be part of the release of the CPD changes and the Board deeply appreciates the responses from Members and the expression of their concerns.
