Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points

As RACS transitions towards a new and innovative CPD framework, there will be specific CPD activities that Fellows will be asked to undertake between January and June 2021. During this time, other education activities will not be recognised for CPD points, however we encourage Fellows to continue to participate in education activities relevant to their scope of practice and learning needs.

For Fellows who undertook this activity prior to 31 December 2020, CPD was allocated at one point per hour (maximum of 14 points) in Category 3 - Maintenance of Knowledge and Skills.
