CPD Programmes and Compliance Audits

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

A condition of being issued with an APC is you must provide evidence of enrolment and satisfactory progress in a Council-approved recertification programme.  Medical laboratory technicians must be able to provide evidence they have undertaken at least 8 hours of professional development activity in the previous twelve-month period.

Examples of verifiable CPD activities include:

  • conferences, courses and workshops
  • web-based learning (with verifiable outcomes)
  • postgraduate study (leading to a qualification relevant to the practitioner’s scope of practice)
  • approved in-service training or peer contact activities
  • presentation at an oral health seminar.
