CONTINUOUS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD) POINTS SYSTEM

In order to retain their certification, PA-CRP title holders must apply for the CPD annually. CPD ensures that the PA-CRP –designated Risk Professional stays updated on the latest risk management trends and strategies.

As our community, industry and markets are constantly changing, continuous education and development is what will distinguish PA-CRP holders and raise the standards in our profession.

In choosing to apply for the CPD every year, you demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the certification and the risk management profession.
You should maintain copies of your CPD documents and activities throughout the one year period. You can then submit this documentation via your ANZIIF learning portal along with your CPD application.

The PA-CRP Programme employs a points system to qualify for the CPD, as shown below. To qualify for the CPD, the PA-CRP holder must accomplish 25 CPD points and pay the CPD fee of 100USD for members and 200USD for non-members.
