*OTA members can track their CPD by visiting the My CPD page (login required)*
To meet the requirements of the CPD Registration Standard as set out by the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (APRHA), each occupational therapist with general registration will need to accrue a minimum of 30 hours of CPD in a year across at least two of the three categories detailed below:
- OTBA CPD Category 1 - Formal Learning Activities
- OTBA CPD Category 2 - Informal Learning Activities
- OTBA CPD Category 3 - Engagement with the Profession
For detailed information about these three categories, visit our CPD Requirements page.
Members who register for a CPD event directly with Occupational Therapy Australia, will have their attendance automatically entered in the CPD Tracker once attendance is recorded; in this circumstance members do not have to record their CPD hours manually in their tracker.
When manually entering CPD activity, participation in activities should be recorded according to the hours spent doing the activity. Activities should only be recorded when they have been completed - do not record activities that have yet to be undertaken.
The following Reflection Tools have been designed to assist in keeping track of CPD progress:
- Informal Learning Reflection Tool
- Peer Consultation Reflection Tool
- Supervision / Mentoring Reflection Tool
- Reflective Practice Tool
