During your one-year licence term, you must complete a minimum of 20 CPD points related to the residential construction industry. Points can be earned through training, from research and education development, or a combination of both. You can earn two CPD points per hour of formal learning and one CPD point per hour of informal learning.
You are required to keep a record of your completed CPD training for three years after the end of your licence term. We may audit your CPD participation at any time upon request, so keep your records complete and accessible. Only completed training that can be verified is eligible for CPD points.
