You and Your CPD Obligations

Is your personal Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program meeting APEGA's regulatory expectations? APEGA has enhanced its review process to improve Member CPD compliance. If you are randomly selected for a review, APEGA will focus on two areas:

  1. Ensuring you are completing your required CPD hours
  2. Ensuring that the CPD content is effective and relevant
