Professional Development

Who needs to do professional development?

ALL Professional and “Practicing” Honorary Members are required to complete the required minimum of 15 hours’ on-going training per annum in order to receive an Annual Practicing Certificate. 

How many hours do I need to complete each year?

A minimum of 15 hours’ ongoing study/training/active learning over a one-year period is required to maintain Professional Member status and to meet the NZAPH Professional Development Requirements of your Annual Practicing Certificate.

What happens if I don't complete my professional development hours?

Failure to comply within three months from the due date (31 March) may cause the status of membership to be reduced to Non-Practicing Member. Should a Member fail to complete this requirement due to mitigating circumstances and that Member approaches the committee in confidence, then the committee may use its discretion to grant an extension of time.
