It is important for CA ANZ to maintain the quality and expertise of the profession and it is for this reason that all members are required to undertake continuing professional development

Member CPD requirements

What is CPD?

Continuing professional development can support your career, equipping you with the knowledge and skills that you need to stay up to date in your field. Participating in CPD is essential for all CA ANZ members and this comes with some key benefits.  

We believe that CPD should be flexible, so you choose when and where you do your CPD hours through a range of educational activities, such as conferences, courses, workshops, technical discussion groups, webinars, in-house training or self-directed learning. For trienniums commencing from 1 July 2021 members are also able to include on-the-job training for up to 50% of their verifiable CPD requirements provided it is verified using the CA ANZ prescribed on-the-job CPD form.

Your chosen CPD activities are not restricted to courses associated with accounting or financial topics. If the activity is structured, educational or technical in content, and enhances your ability to do your job, that training can also go towards your CPD hours. 

What are CPD exemptions?

We understand that changes to circumstances can affect the ability for members to meet their CPD requirements. Depending on the circumstances, you may be eligible for a reduction in your CPD hours.
