External Events Allocated AAPM CPD Points

Part of AAPM's Professional Development Program is the allocation of CPD points, which assists members in reaching and maintaining their professionally recognised status as AAPM Certified Practice Managers and Fellows. AAPM has extended this service to educational programs external to AAPM to allow AAPM members to account for their participation in such courses.

IMPORTANT:

  • For educational programs delivered by external providers, CPD points are NOT automatically added to your membership profile. You will need to use the self service area of the website and add them manually. More information & instructions
  • You will also need to upload documentation as proof of attendance or evidence of completion. The education provider responsible for the program will provide this for you.
  • CPD points for programs/events delivered by AAPM (i.e. not external providers) will automatically be added to your membership profile on satisfactory completion, provided you are logged in to the website when you register for the event.
