    All voluntary associations recognized by the PIRB, as well as accredited tertiary educational institutions may apply directly to the PIRB to validate application for CPD activity.

    All other bodies, such as private companies, private providers or state organizations, would need to have the contents of their CPD activity(s) vetted by a recognized voluntary association or accredited tertiary educational institution before submitting an application to the PIRB for validation of a CPD activity(s).

    The organisers of these courses, conferences or seminars etc would therefore have to approach the appropriate recognised voluntary association and or accredited tertiary educational institution for vetting of the activity(ies) and may be charged a fee for such evaluation and vetting.

    Registered persons, who intend participating in an activity provided by any other bodies should ensure that the activity is approved by the PIRB before the activity is undertaken so that the credits awarded will be recognised by PIRB.

    In validating a Category 1 CPD activity, the following aspects must be are covered:

    1. The activity should serve to maintain or enhance the knowledge, skills and competence of all those who participate in it.
    2. The activity should meet an educational and developmental need and provide an effective learning experience for the participants.
    3. The depth and breadth of the subject matter covered must be appropriate with sufficient time for discussion.
    4. The subject covered should provide a balanced view and should not be unduly promotional.
    5. The presenters should have proven practical and academic experience and be good communicators.
    6. Evaluation forms for obtaining feedback from participants on the activity must be provided for rating of the relevance, quality and effectiveness of the activity.
