Recertification (APC/CPD)

Once you have been granted registration in the relevant scope of practice, you must be issued with an annual practising certificate before you can work in New Zealand as a medical laboratory scientist, a medical laboratory technician, a medical laboratory pre-analytical technician or as an anaesthetic technician.    

Annual practising certificates must be renewed every year and their issue is dependent on you providing the Council with evidence of enrolment and participation in a Council-approved recertification programme (commonly referred to as a CPD programme).
