Q&A's : Why CPD?

What is CPD?

  • Continuing professional development (CPD) is the means by which registered people (i.e. Journeyman, Tradesman and Certifying) maintain their knowledge and skills related to their trade. 
  • By maintaining and improving the competence of registered tradespeople, CPD is a valuable tool that assists the Board with their commitment to protect the health and safety of the public. 


Do I have to do CPD?

  • If you are a registered person (i.e. Journeyman, Tradesman or Certifying), completing CPD is a mandatory condition to relicense each year.


What will happen if I don't do the mandatory CPD training?

  • It is likely that a new licence will not be issued to you if you have not completed your annual CPD training.
