The Council acknowledges the impact of flooding and Cyclone Gabrielle on practitioners and whānau in all affected areas. If you have been impacted by the cyclone and have any issues or concerns surrounding annual practising certificate renewal, please do not hesitate to contact the Council if you need to speak with us about your application.


Practising Certificate renewals are open from 14 February until 31 March. 

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

The Council's recertification programme framework is based on a continuing professional development (CPD) model. 

Practitioners registered with the Council are required to maintain their competence in their relevant scope of practice. Each individual practitioner has a responsibility to keep their knowledge up to date by undertaking relevant CPD.

Medical laboratory science practitioners are expected to manage their CPD through enrolment with a CPD provider that has been approved by the Council.
