Any interested organisation can apply to be accredited as a CPD home to provide CPD programs for doctors. The organisation may be an education provider, another organisation with a primary educational purpose or an organisation with a primary purpose other than education. All CPD homes will have the appropriate governance structures, expertise and resources to provide a CPD program/s that supports meaningful professional development.
The Australian Medical Council (AMC) accredits CPD homes on behalf of the Board.
Organisations interested in applying to become a CPD home should email the AMC for more information - firstname.lastname@example.org
Any CPD home providing a program for registered specialists must ensure they include any specialty-specific high-level requirements.
Specialist high-level requirements are expected to be able to be done within the specialist’s 50 hours of CPD and will fall into reviewing performance, measuring outcomes or education activities. For example, a basic or advanced life support course would be an educational activity.
