CPD activity accreditation

Optometrists can meet the Board’s CPD requirements by undertaking accredited or non-accredited CPD activities.

Accredited CPD activities are those that have been assessed as meeting the criteria in Appendix A of the Board’s Guidelines on continuing professional development for endorsed and non-endorsed optometrists. Accredited CPD activities will be advertised with a Board approved logo that indicates the number of points assigned to that activity.

The Board has authorised the national office of Optometry Australia (OA) to administer the CPD accreditation process on behalf of the Board. This includes assessment of activities and assignment of CPD points.

The Board has developed the following Continuing professional development provider manual  to assist approved and non-approved Continuing Professional Development (CPD) providers in the development of accredited CPD activities for the optometry profession.

All queries regarding the application process should be directed to the national office of OA directly at cpd@optometry.org.au.
