Membership CPD study requirements
In order to maintain Transitional and Registered Membership of the Institute, members are required to make a commitment to a prescribed number of hours of recognised CPD study.
Members are required to undertake 25 hour equivalents of CPD study in each year period prior to each annual renewal of their membership.
The “hour equivalent” is the formal time period adopted to measure the progress of members in this area.
Members are required to complete an entry on the online CPD diary on the Institutes website for each group of hour equivalents claimed (i.e. a member claiming hour equivalents of CPD time for attendance at the NZIBS Annual General Meeting, would need to make an entry in his/her CPD diary to have that time allowance approved).
An electronic CPD diary log shall exist for each member on the Institutes website under individual members profile/log-on. Time may be recorded for CPD activity during the course of the year as CPD is completed. CPD diary logs shall be marked as complete and be submitted annually for approval by the Institute’s Executive. These shall then be reviewed in detail to ensure the activity completed and the time claimed has met the standards set by Executive.
The satisfactory completion of the CPD requirement will form the basis upon which the annual Practicing Certificate will be issued.
This programme has been instigated on a mandatory basis on the understanding that those Regulation 04 – AMP Programme July 2013 Page 4 of 6 with whom we deal, both within and outside the industry, can be assured that the Institute’s members, are kept informed of new methods, products and technologies as they become available and the Member’s competencies are being adequately maintained.
