Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Requirements
As part of the new reforms, all licence renewal dates will change. The CPD Year for all licence and certificate holders starts 23 March each year and ends on 22 March the following year.
The first CPD Year will run from 23 March 2020 to 22 March 2021.
All individuals holding a Class 1 Licence or Class 2 Licence must complete the CPD specified under their licence.
There is no CPD required for Assistant Agents. Certificate of Registration holders as an Assistant Strata Managing Agent must complete at least three (3) units each CPD Year from a valid Certificate IV qualification. Assistant Agents can complete any of the units from the Certificate IV qualification.
Records you need to keep
Licence and certificate holders must retain their own records of any compulsory, elective or business skills topics completed.
SCA (NSW) Members CPD records will be maintained by the association, however individuals are advised to retain their own records and must provide these records as evidence if requested by NSW Fair Trading.
