Speech Pathology Australia has a commitment to protect the public through robust self-regulation processes and quality standards of professional practice. Speech Pathologists are required to undergo Continuing Professional Development throughout their careers to develop the personal and professional qualities required in the exercise of their profession. The following article has been extracted by Speech Pathology Australia, which informs the different CPD requirements for Speech Pathologists in 2021, and is subject to change.
The continuing professional development requirements apply to both Provisional CPSP and full certified practising members and are as follows:
• A minimum of 20 CPD points must be gained per membership year
• A maximum of 12 CPD points can b earned in each activity type
• CPD points cannot be carried forward to another membership year
• CPD activities must be relevant to professional practice as speech pathologists, extend the skills and knowledge of the speech pathologist and be related to their professional development plan
• CPD activities can be speech pathology specific or non-speech pathology specific. A minimum of 10 points must be achieved per membership year with activities related to the practice
• It is preferred if the CPD activities are evidence-based
