Continuing professional development (CPD)
The Victorian Building Authority encourages building and plumbing practitioners to undertake continuing professional development (CPD) to maintain the currency of their skills and knowledge.
In future, building practitioners may be required to comply with CPD requirements as part of their application for renewal, subject to Regulations setting out the CPD requirements.
Once the framework is decided, a period of time will be provided before the framework is applied, ultimately giving practitioners time to understand their obligations before they come into effect.
When assessing a registered building practitioner's application for renewal, the VBA will take into account whether the applicant has complied with any CPD requirements.
